Opportunity Appalachia will host a launch webinar on Tuesday, January 25 from 1:00-2:30 PM (EST) to launch a second, expanded phase of Opportunity Appalachia. The webinar will feature Gayle Manchin, Federal co-Chair of the Appalachian Regional Commission, pre-recorded remarks from Tom Barkin, President & CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond*, and a welcome from Donna Gambrell, President & CEO of Appalachian Community Capital.
We invite all interested community and economic development leaders, local elected officials, developers, and business owners to learn about the opportunity to obtain technical assistance for important development projects to move your community forward.
