Please join Cunningham Public Library on Saturday, September 11th, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. via Zoom for a presentation and discussion on economic development in our community.
Members of the community and area business leaders are invited to join in this interactive presentation.
Jeremy Hill, Director of the Center for Economic Development and Business Research at Wichita State University will lead this interactive forum. Hill’s presentation is designed to help us better understand our economic trends, identify our area’s comparative advantage, and help us as a community to prioritize a strategy for growth.
As part of our discussions, we will ask participants to help us identify our community’s current resources and needs and help us to answer the question, “What library resources are needed to support our community’s economic development efforts including support for remote working?”
