The Center for Business and Economic Research in the Sam M. Walton College of Business at the University of Arkansas will host a quarterly economic update May 23 in Fayetteville. Mervin Jebaraj, interim director for the center, will present the update during the Quarterly Business Analysis Luncheon at 11:30 a.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn Fayetteville.
“I am looking forward to presenting the latest economic information about the Arkansas and Northwest Arkansas economies to our community leaders,” Jebaraj said. “The program will highlight new economic data like GDP growth, unemployment rates, personal income and population estimates and dive deeper into the underlying trends that will affect the economic expansion in the state and region over the near term.”
This will be Jebaraj’s first quarterly economic update since Kathy Deck resigned as center director.
The 75-minute program will include time for questions and answers, and the cost to attend is $40, including lunch. Registration deadline is May 19. More information is available by calling 479-575-4151 or online at cber.uark.edu.
