July 23, 2004 – Dr. Bruce Domazlicky, director of the Center for Business and Economic Research at Southeast Missouri State University, has accepted a nomination to join a research group sponsored by the St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank.

The new group is part of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis’ efforts to expand its involvement in the states and communities of the 8th District, Domazlicky said.  The 8th District Business and Economics Research Group (BERG) will consist of the Regional Group of the St. Louis Fed’s Research Division and university-based centers for business and economics research in the district.  BERG will create a forum for researchers with a detailed knowledge of sub-areas of the 8th District, he said.
