On a local level:

The Gateway chapter of the National Association for Business Economics (NABE) has a mission of aiding in the leadership and understanding of economics. With that in mind, we strive to educate members of the St. Louis metro area on topics related to business economics with an emphasis on our region.  To accomplish this, we work closely with local universities and businesses to provide a forum for professionals and enthusiasts alike to  discuss current issues.
