Welcome to the professional development event of the year for economic and workforce development researchers! The 60th Anniversary of the C2ER Annual Conference and LMI Institute Forum celebrates the Roaring 2020’s to come and will focus on how researchers can work to support their state, local, and regional communities moving their economy and talent forward. The Conference will be composed of breakout sessions, roundtables full of peer-discussion and networking, informative vendor presentations, off-site learning labs, and keynotes from industry professionals.

Build new skills and engage with technical experts at our newest conference track. These technical workshops will feature interactive hands-on exercises using free data tools.
