Last week, the eighth annual Emsi conference took place September 10-12 in beautiful Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. It was our best (and largest) conference to date, with exciting updates on Emsi innovation from CEO Andrew Crapuchettes, several keynotes from our new partner Strada Education Network, and nearly two hundred professionals hailing from education, business, and economic and workforce development gathered together to share ideas on how to use labor market data to build more prosperous communities.
