Strategic Planning in Arkansas Communities and Regions

The 21st century economy is global, it is digital, and it is fast. It is also disruptive, and communities, regions, and businesses that do not adapt suffer, with 2/3 of Arkansas counties losing population in the last census estimate and 89% not keeping up with the national rate of growth.

It is also loaded with opportunities, and the purpose of our programs is to equip communities and regions to take advantage of those opportunities and become vibrant and sustainable in this new era.
