Meetings to explore Hispanic impact

A series of six luncheons to be held across North Carolina this summer and fall will examine the details and implications of recent research on the state’s growing Hispanic population.

The meetings will focus on a recent report, “The Economic Impact of the Hispanic Population on the State of North Carolina,” published by the Frank Hawkins Kenan Institute of Private Enterprise.

Each session will feature a review of the findings by one of the report’s co-authors, John D. Kasarda and James H. Johnson, both of the Kenan Institute, an arm of the Kenan-Flagler Business School at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

The sessions also will include a panel discussion of the implications of the findings, an interactive conversation with attendees and lunch.

The sessions will be free and open to the public and are hosted by the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation in Winston-Salem, and North Carolina Citizens for Business and Industry and the N.C. Bankers Association, both of Raleigh.

Register by calling the Bankers Association at 800.662.7044.
