ARC is excited to co-host our 2022 annual conference titled One Appalachia: Connection & Collaboration with the state of Maryland, October 17-19, at the Rocky Gap Resort in Flintstone, Maryland. 

This event will highlight how our 13 states and 423 counties are collaborating to bring each of ARC’s strategic investments to life. The conference will feature ARC partners who work daily to strengthen Appalachia by creating and expanding workforce development, growing sectors like outdoor recreation, developing entrepreneurs, and building leadership and community capacity.

Conference Highlights

  • An exclusive fireside chat between Governor Larry Hogan and special guest Cal Ripken Jr.
  • Mobile workshops highlighting Maryland’s partnerships that have led to growth in workforce development, home-grown businesses, and tourism
  • Special addresses from ARC Governors in attendance (to be announced)

Attendees will be motivated by stories of resilience, inspired by success strategies, and energized by tactics they can use to replicate new economic development opportunities in their Appalachian communities.
