A Message from the Chair
Welcome back! It's been rough on all of us not being able to host Create Little Rock Happy Hours, the Unplugged Speaker Series, and our other engaging events. More importantly, we've missed seeing everyone! That's why we're extremely excited to announce that Create Little Rock will be back in full swing beginning next week with the return of our summer programming series called Land in the Rock.

The LITR programming series is designed to showcase why Little Rock is a great place to live and work. While LITR events are meant for all Create Little Rock members, we specifically encourage interns, law clerks, and new residents to participate in hopes of making their experience even more meaningful. In fact, we want as many locals to attend as possible so that our summer guests and new residents can make great local connections! While our first three events are outdoors, we'll begin returning to indoor venues in July.

Finally, thanks to all of the 2020 and 2021 CLR officers, particularly 2020 Chairman Graham Talley, for making the best of a bad situation over the past 16 months. Now let's make up for lost time and get back to some great Create Little Rock events!

Land in the Rock
Sponsored by:
Each summer, Create Little Rock puts on a summer programming series designed to welcome interns, law clerks, recent grads, and anyone else new to the Little Rock region to show them what we have to offer. While we won't be able to do the full list of activities that we're used to due to limited availability of some of them, we'll get to experience most of them. All LITR events are also for regular CLR members. If your company has anyone who fits the above categories, please encourage them to sign up for Land in the Rock emails at landintherock.com and bring them to a CLR event with you! We'll begin by welcoming them with free tickets to a Travs game. Details below.
