“State of Jobs & the Economy” Luncheon Scheduled for July 26
The Frisco Chamber announced today it will hold the second luncheon in its 2012 luncheon series aimed at providing a cohesive overview of key issues and topics that are specific to the greater Frisco area. The Chamber will host “State of Jobs & the Economy” – presented in part by Collin Bank – on Thursday, July 26. Chamber members, business professionals and residents alike are invited to participate from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Embassy Suites Dallas-Frisco Hotel & Conference Center.
The “State of Jobs & the Economy” Luncheon will cover how just ONE new job being created in or relocated to Frisco impacts various economic factors, including real estate, retail and leisure...and what it means to business owners and professionals in the greater area. Insight will also be provided into bank funding available to Texas and how this impacts development, the attributes that are helping North Texas attract new businesses, the new industry segments coming into Frisco, and a pre-budget briefing comparing our local economy to that of Texas as a whole and to the entire United States.
Our featured speaker will be M. Elizabeth Morris, founder of Insight Research Corporation, and chief executive officer and chief economist for the firm. With more than 38 years in the field, she specializes in applied regional economics and serves as an expert witness in various aspects of land use, real estate market dynamics, economic analysis and public policy.

“As previous announcements have shown, Frisco is faring well at attracting some large businesses to open doors or relocate here, said Tony Felker, president and CEO of the Frisco Chamber. “This growth positively impacts every one of us in this city in some way…come learn how.”
Along with Collin Bank, key sponsors of the event include Frisco Economic Development Corporation, HNTB Corporation and Stonebriar Centre.
