2017: Now more than ever means ACTION. This is a Summit designed to support you, connect you to resources and partners to help you make a lasting change in your community. Please join Congressman Hal Rogers and Governor Matt Bevin for the 2017 SOAR Summit. Taking last year’s concept a step further, we will showcase solutions currently driving economic growth in the region centered around our seven areas of focus. The SOAR Summit 2017 will convene federal partners, funders, and support organizations while giving those in our region taking action access to these resources. This year, we also have a mini-grant program to provide the top projects with access to funding resources to help them expand their impact. Details coming soon! During the morning session, we will have the opportunity to hear from Congressman Hal Rogers and Governor Matt Bevin, then a series of short presentations from innovators implementing ACTION oriented solutions in the region. The afternoon will consist of optional breakouts and an Expo style experience where the focus will be on networking and showcasing the solutions that are underway as organized around the SOAR Blueprint for Economic Growth.
