Economic Indicator Series
The Center is creating a series of customized macroeconomic indicators for the Billings trade area. These monthly indicators provide the regional business community with current information on the health of the regional economy and a basis for developing and revising sales forecasts. Included in this indicator series is a monthly Breakfast Program, where we discuss the latest trends in the economy and feature a speaker on some aspect of our regional economy.

Now's the time for our region to get excited about energy. We are working on commercializing new, efficient energy technologies that can bring immediate economic development opportunities to remote and agricultural areas in our region. Contact Tom Yoder at (406) 657-2220 for more information.
Looking for data, knowledge, or a little advice?

If you are interested in partnering with the Center or would like more information, please contact Scott Rickard at (406) 657-1763.
