Little Rock and Venue

Little Rock is the capital of Arkansas and a city rich in history. At a pivotal moment in the Civil Rights Movement, it was here that nine African American students bravely enrolled in an all white high school and began the long process of desegregation in our country. Rooted in this history, the thriving Little Rock nonprofit sector continues to pioneer new solutions to tough social issues.

During this year’s conference we want you to explore all that Little Rock has to offer! The schedule is designed to foster exploration of downtown Little Rock. The conference will be Centered at the Clinton School of Public Service, the first school in the country to offer a Master of Public Service (MPS) degree.

But we won’t stay there: attendees will have the chance to experience the Ron Robinson Theater, grab food from the River Market and the thriving food truck scene, and sample a variety of local craft beer at the Flying Saucer. A growing city full of southern hospitality, Little Rock promises to be a great conference location!
