Event Description

Pathways to Sustainability, ARC's 2018 Annual Conference theme, takes place at the Best Western Inn of the Ozarks Hotel & Convention Center, Eureka Springs, AR, on October 8-10, 2018. We have had some wonderful conferences in the past, but believe our 28th will be the best one ever. We have some great presenters confirmed including some who have spoken on the world stage. We are honored to have Mr. John Bradburn, who recently retired from General Motors after 39 years of service, as our keynote speaker.

Brenda Pulley, formerly with Keep America Beautiful, Pete Grogan, recently retired from the International Paper Company, and Chaz Miller, National Waste & Recycling Assn (retired), will all be on the agenda.

Other activities taking place during the conference will be the Annual Awards Luncheon, Breakout Sessions, a Golf Tournament, Recycling Tour, and Receptions.
