Fall Delta Regional Conference Set for Nov. 7-8, 2019 in Little Rock; Registration fees & annual dues info

Posted on May 16, 2019 at 01:16 PM

The fall Delta Regional Conference regarding community and economic development for the 8-state region from southern Illinois and Missouri to New Orleans is set for Little Rock, Arkansas for Thursday evening, Nov. 7, 2019, from about 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., and Friday, Nov. 8, 2019 morning and lunch, about 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

It is very helpful to get early registration fees and/or annual membership dues for calendar year 2019, and that information is below.

Turnout has been trending larger for recent events, with the Greater Delta Regional conference at ASU Mid-South in West Memphis on April 25-26 having a very full meeting room. If space runs out this will need to be on a first-come, first-served basis.

FYI–Update regarding Delta Caucus Executive Director Lee Powell—He is recovering from a totally unexpected gangrenous gall bladder infection in which bacteria and fungus from the infection entered the bloodstream. This erupted a few days after the April 25-26 Delta conference in West Memphis.

The surgery was successful. Septic situations must be treated very carefully and Lee Powell is continuing very strong medication and I-V anti-biotics. He is resting, following all doctors’ orders and totally focused on recovery.

Powell earlier had the bad luck of several bad respiratory infections that were going around this winter and spring. A complete recovery from the abdominal infection may take time, but everything possible is being done toward that goal. Thanks for the concern many people expressed.

OPENING SESSION: Thursday evening, Nov. 7, 2018, from about 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., Rotunda of the Arkansas State Capitol.

FRIDAY MORNING AND LUNCH SESSION, Nov. 8, 2019 from about 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Robinson Center ballroom overlooking the Arkansas River.
