​​​​​​​The Lubbock Economics Council

Established in 1967, the Lubbock Economics Council is an association of people in business, education, and public service who are interested in promoting a better understanding of economic matters. The mission of the Council is to provide a regular forum for education, discussion, and debate of economic issues from the local to international level.  The principal avenue by which the LEC pursues its mission is through a monthly luncheon featuring presentations by experts and leaders drawn from business, government, and academia.  The luncheon is held the first Thursday of each month (except for July and August) at the McKenzie-Merket Alumni Center on the campus of Texas Tech University.   Our next meeting is Thursday May 3, 2018; the scheduled speaker is Karr Ingham of InghamEcon, LLC., speaking on "The State of the Lubbock Economy: The Lubbock Economic Index."  Contact Russell Dabbs (russell.dabbs@lcu.edu) to reserve seats by noon Monday April 30.
