    Integrity, Excellence, Service, & Innovation

  • Event Header 

    In 2017 the Texas energy and manufacturing sectors rebounded and Texas job growth was in the top ten states in the nation.  In 2018, if oil prices remain in the range of $40 to $60 per barrel, Texas likely will see continued broad-based growth across regions and sectors. With an unemployment rate at a historical low, the biggest challenge facing the state may be finding enough workers to fill job openings.

    Dr. Keith Phillips will take a close look at the factors behind the growth in Texas and how these will influence the state in 2018.

    This event will be held at the ASU LeGrand Alumni & Visitors Center-
    1620 University Ave., San Angelo, TX 76904

    Check-in will begin at 11:30 a.m.

    $15 event fee includes a lunch catered by Kenny Blanek.
