Economic development conference scheduled TOPEKA (AP) — Leaders in Kansas business, education and state government will meet in Emporia in late March for a two-day seminar to explore the state's economic development efforts and potential. Sen. Fred Kerr, R-Pratt, announced plans for the seminar Friday, saying he hoped to generate interest in the educational community, among business and industry and in governmental circles. "The purpose of the conference is to explore all the questions of economic development in Kansas and the relationship between business and industry and higher education," Kerr said. "Economic growth is obviously one of the state's most pressing concerns. , "This conference, which I anticipate becoming an annual event, will bring together some of the state's most outstanding business leaders, educators and government officials to analyze our best options for future economic growth.'' The conference, scheduled for March 27 and 28, will be held at Emporia State University and is being jointly planned by the Kansas Board of Regents, Pratt Community College, Johnson County Community College, Emporia State and the Kansas Broadcasting System. Kerr said topics will focus on four areas, including examining the success experienced in other states such as North Carolina and Tennessee. Robert Scott, former governor of North Carolina and now president of that state's Department of Community Colleges, will be a keynote . speaker along with U.S. Sen. Nancy Kassebaum, R-Kansas. The Chicago-based research group of Alexander, Grant and Co., will report on Kansas' competitive position with its peers and Ted Von- Cannon, an economic development official from Tennessee, will address the seminar. A statistical report on Kansas' economy will be delivered by Tony Redwood, an economics professor at Kansas State University and Walter Woods, dean of the school of agriculture. Kerr was joined at the news conference by John Gwaltney, president of Pratt Community College, Donald Goldenbaum of the Johnson County school, Stanley Koplik, executive director of the regents, and Bart Finney of Emporia State. Koplik said the seminar will provide those participating with an opportunity to pick up tips from businesses and states that have been successful in developing a cooperative relationship with higher education. And he said Kansas is lagging behind in that regard and said colleges and universities in the state must become more aggressive.
