Please join us for Envision Appalachia: Community Conversations for ARC’s Strategic Plan, a series of virtual public input sessions to identify critical opportunities and challenges facing Appalachia’s economic future. Using insights gathered from these public sessions, coupled with a public survey and guidance from regional, state, and local partners, ARC will develop a strategic plan for fiscal years 2022-2026.
Every five years, ARC updates our strategic investment plan, which helps us determine what types of projects we invest in throughout the Region. As the expert in your community, we need your input in envisioning Appalachia’s future. Each 90-minute facilitated session will include a cross-section of community members from Appalachia providing their feedback on strengths, challenges, solutions and opportunities.
Sessions are free, but space is limited. Registration for each session will close at 5:00 PM ET the day before each session. Once registered, you will receive the Zoom link in your email inbox by 10:00 AM ET the day of each session.
Share Your Thoughts
If you are unable to attend one of our virtual Community Conversations, we still want to hear from you! Please take a few minutes to tell us more about your community and how ARC can help keep Appalachia moving forward.
Strategic Planning Process
As we collect information from our public survey, community conversations, and partner focus groups, ARC will identify top issues, challenges, and opportunities in the Appalachian Region. We will then use that information to synthesize themes and draft investment goals, objectives, and more. We are excited to share the results of this process with you and the rest of the Region in the fall!
