MBEP 8th Annual State of the Region
This year’s Monterey Bay Economic Partnership (MBEP) State of the Region will include cross-sector conversations covering a range of topics from how to drive regional economic recovery and development, affordable housing for all, reducing the digital divide, to policy and legislation impacting our region, and so much more.
We are pleased to announce that Chris Benner and Manuel Pastor of Solidarity Economics will be joining us to discuss their approach to address widening income inequality, rising economic insecurities, and growing social and racial fragmentation while also promoting innovation and economic growth. Congressman Jimmy Panetta will also be joining us to provide a federal legislative update on policies and programs impacting our region.
This annual convening will be held in-person at CSU Monterey Bay and will be attended by business, government and educational leaders from across the tri-state region of Monterey, San Benito and Santa Cruz counties.
Our presentations and conversations will focus on critical issues in our region. It is sure to be exciting with great conversation and networking opportunities.
