2018 SOAR Summit | There is a Future in Appalachia

Be a part of the SOAR Summit 18 on August 30-31 at the East Kentucky Expo Center in Pikeville. This year’s summit is a convening of organizations, businesses, and individuals who represent the best of Appalachia Kentucky. Attendees come from all walks of life but are united in building the 21st Century Appalachia we envision.

This year’s Summit will feature the following speakers:
Major General (Retired) Vinny Boles
ARC Federal Co-Chair Tim Thomas
Assistant to the Secretary for Rural Development at USDA Anne Hazlett
Kentucky Wired’s Phillip Brown
Congressman Hal Rogers
Governor Matt Bevin

A new addition this year is a pre-Summit track focusing on leadership and providing attendees interactive breakout sessions focused on either Health in Appalachia or Tech in Appalachia. The expansion of the Summit to two days will also provide attendees more opportunities to network and visit the individuals, businesses, and organizations that are building solutions across Appalachia Kentucky.
