Webinars on ARC’s Strategic Plan

From the Appalachian Regional Commission. . .

On June 15, 16, and 17 the Commission will hold a series of interactive webinars to obtain citizen input for a six-year (2011–2016) strategic plan that will guide future ARC economic and community development efforts in the Appalachian Region. These webinars are an important opportunity for residents of Appalachia to contribute to a plan that will address issues, opportunities, and challenges the Region will face over the next six years.

The Commission invites you to take part in the webinars and to share this
information with others in your community. Participants will be able to provide input via electronic polling and online comments on key issues facing the Region, such as jobs and business development; infrastructure and capital; community and leadership development; education, training, and health; the environment; and energy.

Three webinars will be held:

• Southern Appalachia webinar (for residents of the states of
Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina): Tuesday, June 15,
at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time.

• Central Appalachia webinar (for residents of the states of West Virginia,
Kentucky, Virginia, Tennessee, and North Carolina): Wednesday,
June 16, at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time.

• Northern Appalachia webinar (for residents of the states of New York,
Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Maryland): Thursday, June 17, at 10:00 a.m.
Eastern Daylight Time.

Each webinar will last approximately one hour. There is no cost to participate,
and no pre-registration is required.

challenges and opportunities and improve quality of life for your community’s residents.
