Looking back at the Annual Regional Assembly

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2021 MARC Annual Regional Assembly on June 11.

Hundreds of people joined the event, which was virtual this year. The program celebrated regional accomplishments, recognized public health’s critical leadership role and showcased two original works of art.

The event also included four Regional Leadership Awards. Each year, these awards honor people and organizations that advocate regional concepts, approaches and programs; address regional challenges; apply innovative solutions to regional problems; and advance a regional vision of excellence and opportunity.

The 2021 honorees were:

  • Steve Arbo, Lee’s Summit city manager, and Bill Ebel, Overland Park city manager
  • Dr. Rodney Smith and Stephenie Smith, MSW
  • AltCap
  • Climate Action KC

Video of the Regional Annual Assembly can be found on our YouTube page.

Be sure to save the date for next year: Friday, June 10, 2022, at the Sheraton Kansas City Hotel at Crown Center.
