Included in the price of the conference is a one-year subscription
to the CEDBR forecast booklets ($100 value), which are in-depth
publications and reference guides on regional and statewide
economic conditions in Kansas: 


  The Kansas Economic Trends, published in October, includes the state-wide Economic Conditions survey results, Kansas Industry news and Developments, and indicators for seven regions of the state along with the largest 25 counties.    

 
     
  The Kansas Economic Review, published in February, provides an in-depth analysis of three key segments of the state economy: households, industries, and governments.  Each segment takes a broader view in how it is interconnected with current economic conditions.
