New Dates for Delta Caucus Conference Set for Oct. 20-21, 2022

Posted on March 23, 2022 at 10:44 AM

Delta Regional Conference Moved to Oct. 20-21, 2022 in Little Rock

We have postponed the Delta Caucus conference to Oct. 20-21, 2022 at the Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock, Arkansas.

We have reserved the Great Hall of the Clinton Library for Oct. 21, 2022 Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

We have requested the Choctaw Commons area of the Clinton School of Public Service for Thursday evening, Oct. 21, 2022 from about 5 p.m. to 6:45 p.m., although they cannot confirm that location this far in advance. We will keep you posted.

Due to some illnesses and other complications, the conference was moved from the late spring on June 2-3 to the fall on Oct. 20-21.

We will address community and economic development issues in the Greater Delta Region from southern Illinois and Missouri to New Orleans and eastward to the Alabama Black Belt.

Among the key issues we will include job creation, infrastructure, health care, hunger and nutrition, Delta Heritage tourism, civil rights and diversity, and related subjects.

We support the Delta Regional Authority and as always advocate for a much larger budget. Currently Congress is considering a major increase in the DRA budget to the $150 or greater level, which would be a historic expansion.


You register by paying the registration fees, which are $100 each until Oct. 5 and then late registration after that goes up to $130.

To pay the $100 registration fees, you can go to the website at and go to the PayPal link that says “Donate.”
