The Texas A&M University-Kingsville College of Business Administration will host their Sixth Annual Community Breakfast at 7:30 a.m. Thursday, April 28, in the ballrooms of the Memorial Student Union Building. The event is co-hosted by the Kleberg County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the Kingsville Chamber of Commerce and sponsored by IBC Bank.

This event is geared toward providing an additional dimension to fiscal awareness and responsibility to students and to residents of Kingsville and the surrounding communities. Tickets are $10 per person or $80 for a table of eight. Online registration is required and no tickets will be available at the door.

This year’s speaker is Harry Moser, who will talk about Reshoring of American Manufacturing: The manufacturing industry as a resource of wealth for the economy and its relevance for our future competitiveness. He will present the tool named the “total cost of ownership” that calculates the total cost of outsourcing offshore, believing it will increase profit and competitiveness. His presentation brings transparency to the question of making it in the United States or having it made in a low-labor cost country.

The deadline to register is Friday, April 22. For more information about the Community Breakfast or to purchase tickets, visit the college website at and click on the Community Breakfast button.
