Booneville Strategic Planning Session

The Center for Community and Economic Development partnered with HarnessPoint Community Solutions to host community leaders in Booneville, Arkansas for a free, one-day strategic planning session. Leaders discussed the history of the city, conducted a SWOT analysis, identified their mission/vision and came up with action steps to move their community forward. This session was made possible by the Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation’s “Moving the Needle” grant.

Susan Featherson and Gerald Baker of the Booneville Chamber of Commerce, Pam Alexander of HarnessPoint Community Solutions and Sasha Grist of Western Arkansas Planning Development District shared their insights into the day in the following video:
