Build Bentonville Lunch - Quarterly Discussions on Community Topics
Due to new technological advances, a biking mecca in our backyard, a hub for artists and makers, and an economy that is flourishing, our region has boundless opportunities for success. Build Bentonville is a quarterly lunch that shines a light on pertinent community topics, new and improved initiatives, economic updates, and keeps Chamber members aware of what is on the horizon for our fast-growing community. This program is a fantastic way to keep abreast of what is happening in Northwest Arkansas, specifically in the greater Bentonville area.
For this session we focus on the growing challenge of finding attainable housing in our area, who's impacted and why it matters. Join us for an in-depth conversation and deep dive focused on the ramifications of this growing issue and how the community can respond in order to create a sustainable community that's accessible to all.
