MBEP is hosting the third annual Regional Economic Summit at the Cocoanut Grove in Santa Cruz on May 4, 2017. The keynote speaker is Dr. Chris Thornberg, Founding Partner at Beacon Economics, who will provide insights into local, state and national economic trends. The morning session will consist of panels that will put a spotlight on jobs as the backbone of our economy. We hope you'll join us as we explore and answer these important questions:

  • Who is producing high-quality jobs in the region?

  • How do we create more of them?

  • How can we work together to move people into higher wage jobs?
