More than a dozen members of the Springfield and Nixa business communities gathered for Zimmer Radio’s latest CEO Roundtable luncheon Tuesday at our KWTO studios in Springfield.
Leaders in real estate, law, education, broadcasting, banking, chamber, the auto industry and business entrepreneurs spent over an hour talking about challenges in educating our workforce, worker shortages, inflation, and the biggest obstacles to economic development.
