A Message from the Chair
I'm so excited about our two events this month! If you've never been to the Innovation HUB, you're in for a treat. Their "maker space" is really impressive, and their executive director, Chris Jones, will tell us about the facility, their mission, and a little bit about himself.

I'm equally excited about our Happy Hour. A few months ago we got to have drinks at one private club - The Little Rock Club - on the top floor of Regions Tower. Now we get to enjoy some cocktails at another private club - The 1836 Club! Just one more unique and exclusive event brought to you by Create Little Rock!

If you've never been to a Create Little Rock event, I hope you'll take advantage of one of these great opportunities. Don't worry if you don't know anyone else going - just come find me and I'll be happy to introduce you to some great folks! Bring a friend or come ready to make some new ones. It's easy to make new and lasting connections in Little Rock - all you have to do is show up!
