Branding initiative begins with town hall meetings, Jan. 22-23

PRIDE is excited to announce receipt of an ARC Technical Assistance grant to pursue a branding initiative in southern and eastern Kentucky, in partnership with the Foundation for Appalachian Kentucky.

We have retained Steve Chandler, Chandlerthinks, as the lead consultant on this project. Mr. Chandler is a Kentucky native who brings nearly two decades of experience in strategic planning and brand development for local, regional and national brands. He and two teams will be touring southern and eastern Kentucky the week of Jan. 21, 2018. During this time, they will hold a series of six town hall meetings across the region.

Community leaders across southern and eastern Kentucky are invited to join this important conversation. Participants in the town hall meetings will join in a discussion, and they may be interviewed by representatives of Chandlerthinks. We ask that participants bring their ideas about our region’s assets, how we can showcase those assets, and how a regional brand can strengthen the efforts of our individual communities.

Space is limited. If you wish to attend a town hall meeting, please RSVP to PRIDE@centertech.com. Please indicate which of the following you plan to attend:
