The EDCO Annual Luncheon, scheduled to take place March 10 at The Riverhouse, is a tradition that provides the Central Oregon business community an opportunity to hear nationally-recognized business leaders discuss current and future economic trends.
This year EDCO is excited to announce two keynote speakers: Nicole Kaeding, an economist from the Tax Foundation and Minoli Ratnatunga, associate director, regional economics research from the Milken Institute.
So, just how does Central Oregon’s business climate stack up to others around the country? The Milken Institute rated Bend-Redmond #8 on their list of Best Performing Small Cities in 2015. Oregon ranks 11th in the Tax Foundation’s State Business Tax Climate Index. Find out how our tax climate compares with other states in the country and how we can improve our rankings.
