2017 Breakthrough Solutions Conference Set for June 7 and 8

by Mark Peterson - March 8, 2017


Just a note to let you know that the 2017 Breakthrough Solutions Conference is set for Thursday, June 8, with the theme “Re-Imagining Your Community in the 21st Century Economy,” with pre-conference workshops taking place on June 7.

This will be a unique opportunity to learn how to envision and develop your community to be successful in the 21st century economy, as you seek to attract tourists, businesses, entrepreneurs, families, and retirees. You will also hear about exciting community projects and opportunities in eight high priority issue areas.

These events will take place at the University of Arkansas System's Cooperative Extension Service headquarters at 2301 S. University Ave. in Little Rock. 

The two half-day pre-conference workshops on June 7 are: 

    • “Re-imagining Your Community in the 21st Century Economy – Step by Step”

    • “Developing Cultural Competence – Becoming an Effective Leader Across Cultures and Boundaries”

The workshops will provide valuable insights and tools that address two of the most important issues facing communities and regions today. Be sure to reserve these dates on your calendar.

More information on these events will soon be available at

I look forward to seeing you at the conference and pre-conference workshops!

Best regards,
