The 2013-2014 17th Annual Southern Colorado Economic Forum
The Southern Colorado Economic Forum brings together
local experts from the public, private, and academic sectors to report
on our economy. Thought of by many as our region’s economic “State
of the Union,” the Forum offers the community an annual snapshot
of local economic activity and provides forecasts to help businesses
plan for the upcoming year.
This valuable research about where our community has been and where
we are headed is made possible through a cooperative effort between
UCCS and local business sponsors. This long-standing partnership between
the academic and business communities has produced timely, accurate,
and objective economic data to guide local businesses for nearly a decade.
