​​​​​​​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 luncheon will be held 11:30 a.m. Thursday October 4, with guest speaker Dr. Jeff Mercer of Texas Tech University: "A Decade After the Financial Crisis: Looking Back, Looking Ahead."  For reservations, contact Russell Dabbs, russell.dabbs@lcu.edu, or 806-7386.
