Posted on September 06, 2023 at 02:28 PM

Please Register by Paying Early Registration Fees for Nov. 16-17, 2023 Delta Conference in Little Rock, Deadlines and registration info are below.

Space is limited and is allotted on a first come, first served basis. If your fees are received later you may not be able to attend due to lack of space.

You register and RSVP by paying the early $70 registration fees for an individual by Sept. 30, or group discount down to $40 each if you can bring three or more people.

Registration fees go up to $100 after Sept. 30, 2023.

For very late registrations after Nov. 5, 2023, fees go up to $125.

We are providing incentives to get fees in on time to avoid the complications caused in earlier meetings when many people waited until the last minute to pay the fees.

BASIC CONFERENCE SCHEDULE: Opening session is Nov. 16, 2023 from 4:45 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Friday session on Nov. 17, 2023 at the Clinton Library from 8:45 a.m. to 1 p.m.

GROUP DISCOUNTS: If you can bring a group of three or more, we will give a group discount down to $40 each, and for a group of four or more we will reduce it to $30 each.

We will no longer be relying on individual invitations to each attendee as we have in the past, due to time constraints. We cannot send out hundreds of invitations to get the turnout of from 70 to 100 or so that we have in the past. This has been a poor use of our time caused by the unfortunate inattention of some attendees.

The schedule starts in the early evening of Nov. 16 a little before 5 p.m., resumes the next morning at 9 a.m. and ends with the luncheon the next day, so you can be in and out of the conference in less than 24 hours.

Request for a prompt and definite response: We ask all of the people we invite to please look over this invitation, see the website at if you would like more information, and then give us a definite yes or no response ASAP. Of course, it complicates our planning if many people wait until the last minute to RSVP. It’s understandable if you can’t work this into your schedule, we just ask everyone to give us a definite, timely response.

Speakers, schedule, group hotel and registration information are below in this message.


We plan to invite President Bill Clinton, Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders, US Sen. John Boozman, Congressman Rick Crawford, Congressman French Hill, Congressman Bruce Westerman, state legislators, mayors and other elected officials, nonprofits, community-minded business leaders, experts in transportation, health care, hunger and nutrition, job creation, Delta Heritage tourism and related regional issues.

Speakers at national, regional and state levels usually confirm much later in the process. We will keep you informed about the schedule as it develops later on.

Key issues: We will cover a range of key issues, starting with job creation at good wages, education and workforce development as the essential requirement for obtaining and retaining good jobs, Delta Heritage tourism, health care, Medicaid, hunger and nutrition, transportation, housing and other infrastructure, and related issues.


Opening session will be on Thursday evening, November 16, 2023 from about 4:45 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at a central Little Rock location, (probably the Arkansas Capitol Rotunda but they do not take reservations this far ahead of time).

Informal session at the Comfort Inn & Suites restaurant and bar, 6:45 p.m. to whenever. Over the years people have often said this is very helpful in the networking opportunities and for individual discussions in a one on one setting.

*Clinton Library Great Hall session is set for Friday, November 17, 2023 from 8:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. *


The group hotel is the Comfort Inn & Suites Presidential in Little Rock. To get the group rate call the hotel at 501-687-7700 and say you are with the Delta Caucus group.**

We hope you can join us for the Delta Regional Conference on Nov. 16-17, 2023. Thanks—Lee Powell, Delta Caucus (202) 360-6347
