​​​​​​​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 June 7, 2018; the scheduled speaker is Michael Giberson , Associate Professor of Practice in the Rawls College of Business' Area of Energy, Economics and Law at Texas Tech University.  Dr. Giberson's topic will be "Electric Power in Lubbock: A Distinctive History and a Promising Future."  Contact Russell Dabbs (russell.dabbs@lcu.edu) to reserve seats by noon Monday June 4.
