Thank you for making this year’s GKC ASPA Facing the Future Forum a great success! We want to give a special thanks to our keynote speaker Troy Davig, senior vice president and director of research at the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City and to our outstanding panel of local professionals. We couldn't have done it without the support of our co-sponsor, the Mid-America Regional Council and our contributing sponsors Park University Hauptmann School for Public Affairs, UMKC's Department of Public Affairs, KU School of Public Affairs and Administration and the City of Kansas City, Mo. Thanks for attending and we hope to see you all at future GKC ASPA events!
