Looking to get involved? Create Little Rock has 4 committees you can join.  Learn about them below, and email the committee chair to get on the list.  Committee meeting schedules are determined by each of the committee chairs.


Be501.com  was conceived by the Economic Development Committee of Create Little Rock’s Think Big Little Rock initiative. It’s designed to be a one-stop shop for things to do in the Little Rock Region. It’s in its beta phase while we build up a committee of volunteers to regularly contribute upcoming events and activities to the site. The Be501 committee is chaired by Kody Robinson, CLR’s Communications Chairman. If you’d like to be an influencer, email Kody and join his committee.
