CREC Conducts Focus Groups in Slade, Kentucky & Atlanta, Georgia

October 21, 2014

CREC’s Mark White conducts focus groups in Slade, Kentucky and Atlanta, Georgia as a part of our work on the Appalachian Regional Commission’s 50th Anniversary.

The Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) is a regional economic development agency that represents a partnership of federal, state, and local government. Established by an act of Congress in 1965, ARC is composed of the governors of the 13 Appalachian states and a federal co-chair, who is appointed by the president. Local participation is provided through multi-county local development districts.
