Student researchers working with the RERI were intimately connected in the production process of the Almanac Series, and in the process, learned valuable research skills, and honed communication and computer skills. Students also discovered a vibrant local economy and created a product we hope will help lay the foundation for economic growth in the years to come. To this end, we would like to thank our RERI students, Maria Leal Delgado, Alia Judd, Roxana Ruiz Rodriguez, and Jaime Wood, for their work on the Southwest Florida Economic Almanac Series

Furthermore, we would like to also thank our sponsors, Collier County Government, Horizon Council, Horizon Foundation, Industrial Development Authority, the Lee Economic Development Office and the Smith Family Foundation, for their continued support of the RERI and the 2021 Southwest Florida Economic Almanac Series.
