The Institute for Justice Invites You to an
Economic Liberty Conference
A gathering of policy leaders to discuss
occupational licensing reform in Arkansas.
On Tuesday, December 13th, we will hear from national and local experts as well as key state legislators regarding opportunities for regulatory reform in Arkansas, best practices for implementing them, and effective strategies for countering resistance from entrenched interests.
Arkansas is the fifth most broadly and onerously licensed state in the country. Arkansans need a license to practice 52 of 102 low- and moderate-income occupations—more than all but 10 other states. Inconsistencies abound. For example, while EMTs only need 28 days of training to save people’s lives, massage therapists are required to complete 117 days of training and barbers and cosmetologists are required to complete 350 days of training.
It's time for a change, and that is the goal of this conference: To chart a path towards greater economic liberty and less government interference for the hard-working entrepreneurs who fuel Arkansas' economy and job growth.
The Forum will take place from 8 AM - 5:00 PM; breakfast and lunch will be served. Cocktail Reception to follow.
The event is free, including meals and beverages. The Institute for Justice invites everyone interested in promoting occupational freedom, so please forward this invite to any associates and staff.
Details about the program are provided below. If you would like to attend, please RSVP early to reserve your space. Space is limited! Please select your meal choice when making your reservation.

When & Where
Institute for Justice
Since 1991, IJ has come to the aid of individuals who want to do the simple things every American has the right to do—including own property, start and grow a business, speak freely about commerce or politics, and provide their children with a good education—but can’t because they find the government in their way.
The Institute for Justice combines cutting-edge litigation, sophisticated media relations, strategic research, boots-on-the-ground advocacy and much more to fight on behalf of those individuals who are denied their constitutional rights.
