CSU-Pueblo business school sponsors economic survey, results event

PUEBLO –The Healy Center for Economic Development in the Hasan School of Business (HSB) at Colorado State University-Pueblo in association with the Greater Pueblo Chamber of Commerce, the Latino Chamber of Commerce, and regional economist Tucker Hart Adams have partnered to assess the state of the area economy as we begin 2010.

Dr. Michael Fronmueller, dean of the Hasan School of Business, has engaged nationally recognized and respected economist Tucker Hart Adams to develop the first-ever economic report on Pueblo. Hart-Adams also distributed and analyzed a Pueblo Business Confidence Survey to provide critical information for the business community to help us understand if our local economy is recovering from the recession.  She will present the report, announce the results of the survey, and provide an economic forecast for the region at  11:30 a.m. on February 11 at CSU-Pueblo Occhiato University Center Ballroom.  Make your reservation by calling Diana Green at the Chamber, 719 542-1704 or dianag@pueblochamber.net.

Fronmueller said the Healy Center plans to conduct the surveys quarterly in the future and to compile the economic report annually for the Pueblo County region. 

“As a partner in the economic development of this community and region, CSU-Pueblo and its Healy Center have committed to providing resources and expertise to further the progress of industries, companies, and the community as a whole,” Fronmueller said.
