ST. LOUIS (AP) — The unrest in Ferguson over Michael Brown's death has caused some organizations to rethink holding their conventions in the St. Louis region.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the Church of God in Christ's annual convention has contributed millions of dollars to the St. Louis economy.

St. Louis aldermen have taken a step toward merging economic strategies with surrounding St. Louis County, a move that would pave the way for more cooperation between the two governments.

The Board of Aldermen last week endorsed a merger of economic development agencies. And the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the board is expected to take a final vote in early June.
