Wednesday's Wonderful Collection - Commission for Arkansas' Future records, MS.000488

The Commission for Arkansas' Future was created by Act 810 of the 1989 Arkansas General Assembly to develop long-range planning systems for the state. Along with state appropriations, much of the funding also came from grants from the Federal Economic Development Administration and the United State Department of Commerce.
Pat Lile served as Executive Director of the Commission for Arkansas' Future, and the majority of the files are her papers and correspondence.

This collection includes the papers and correspondence of the commission's Executive Director (Pat Lile), minutes of commission meetings, surveys, grant proposals and reports, organizational papers, general correspondence, publicity and newsclippings, brochures and publications, records of teleconferences and local public meetings, along with drafts of progress and final reports of the commission.
