What is C.O.R.E?
The Calico Rock Organization for Revitalization Efforts (CORE) is a
non-profit, community-action organization dedicated to presenting a
welcoming front door to our community to revitalize our economy

How do I get involved?
CORE has NO annual membership dues.  We are just concerned citizens that
work for our community.  To get involved, simply come to a CORE meeting
and get involved...make your voice heard, volunteer, and help us improve our
community.You can also take part in writing and publishing interesting content
on our site, in order to increase the possibilities of informing the local
population about planned events, exhibitions, fairs, and peaceful actions.
Don't worry about making a mistake, because each article is checked by
experienced authors who responsibly approach even the essay title suggestion
and make edits if they think it's necessary.

When does CORE meet?
CORE meets on the first Thursday of every month at 3:30 p.m.
February-November.  CORE accomplished a great deal of our work through
committee meetings throughout the month.  CORE meetings are held in the
Bluff City Bank Building inside the Chamber of Commerce Offices on
Main Street in Calico Rock.

CORE Board of Directors
The authority of the organization is vested in a seven-member board of
directors which includes the President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer,
and three at-large directors.  All directors and officers are elected annually by
the membership.  There are no limit to the number of terms of election.  A
quorum is met when four board members are present for a meeting.  The
board must meet at least once per year and may meet as often as they deem
necessary.  The board has established policies which govern their operations.
