Delta Caucus May 30-31, 2024 Meeting Will Be by Zoom and Not In-Person in LR

Delta Caucus Meeting on May 30-31, 2024 Will Be by Zoom

April 10, 2024

We have changed the format of the May 30-31, 2024 meeting to a Zoom meeting to enable more participation from people who live a long distance from Little Rock and to reduce the time and expense of travel.

You register and RSVP by paying the registration fees–that information is below in this message.

The Zoom meeting is just as important as an in-person meeting and we will continue working hard to get as strong a turnout as possible.

There is a trend nowadays toward Zoom meetings and away from in-person meetings and we have to deal with that reality.

The meeting will only be by Zoom and of course we are cancelling the meeting space and group hotel bloc in Little Rock.

The key issues will be job creation, infrastructure, health care, hunger and nutrition, Delta Heritage tourism, education/workforce development, transportation and related regional development subjects.

We have 35 RSVPs as of now, have many other invitations sent out, and will keep working to increase that number until May 30.


The opening session will be the evening of May 30, 2024, Thursday, about 5:30 p.m. to 7:15 p.m.

The Friday session May 31, 2024 will be from about 8:45 a.m. to about 12:30 p.m.


You register by paying the registration fees,

The early registration fee of $75 is good until May 1, 2024 to provide an incentive to get the registration fees in before the time of the conference.

After May 1 and up to May 31 the registration fees go up to $100. We would request that people NOT wait until the time of the conference to pay registration fees because it takes up time to collect them while we are trying to get the program started.

The fastest and easiest way to register is to go on the website at and go to the PayPal link that says “Donate.”

If you prefer to pay by check, please make out the check to “Delta Caucus” and mail to:

We would greatly prefer to not have to collect registration fees after the conference is over, so the fees go up to $125 each if we have to collect them at that late time.

Group discount: We will offer a group discount of $50 each for a group of three or more, and a discount down to $30 each for a group of five or more.

Thanks again for all your support of the Delta regional advocacy initiative over the years. Lee Powell, Director, Delta Grassroots Caucus (202) 360-6347
