34 new people are moving to NWA each day, with Bentonville being one of the fastest growing cities. Investing in quality of life is vital to the growth of our community, there is no shortage of things to do in northwest Arkansas; where nature meets art, meets music, meets food, meets education; so on. These intersections are what make the region so unique.

During this lunchtime discussion, you will hear from business representatives about the growth of Bentonville's education scene and how it impacts your business. We are honored to have University of Arkansas confirmed as one out of several great panelists to discuss what's new in NWA's education scene, particularly as it relates to economic development & talent retention.
