The National Study Tour for LeadAR Class 19 will commence in Washington D.C. the week
of September 19, 2021.
Participants are scheduled to visit with Arkansas' Congressional Delegation and staff,
learn about policy from agencies and trade groups, and network with agriculture leadership
groups from other states.
“The UADA Community, Professional, and Economic Development leadership team is working
diligently to coordinate a robust educational experience that affords unique opportunities
for LeadAR participants to learn more about current issues, understand the formation
of policy and impact on the state, and create a valuable network of contacts and resources
that can continue development of communities in Arkansas,” said Dr. Julie Robinson,
the program's director and an associate professor.
During the LeadAR virtual session on August 27, Kristin Higgins with the Public Policy
Center shared information about Arkansas’ Congressional Delegation. She also provided
details on policy topics such as:
Higgins challenged the group to identify the issues they want to learn about or talk
to legislators about. She suggested before they go to review who they will meet, learn
about their policy views, and identify personal calls to action.
Lisa Davis, UADA program associate—leadership, provided the class details on logistics,
schedule, and COVID protocols.
LeadAR is a program designed to help Arkansans broaden their understanding of issues
and opportunities facing our state and strengthen their ability to make a difference.
