Arkansas Municipal League honors City’s Emily Jordan Cox at Virtual 86th Annual Convention

The Arkansas Municipal League at its 86th Annual Virtual Convention, held August 19-21, honored Emily Jordan Cox, the City’s Director of Strategic Operations, with the Adrian L. White Municipal Leadership Award. The award is presented to municipal officials who have served with distinction and dedication to their cities and the League’s boards, councils, or committees for six years.

The award is named in honor of White, who was mayor of Pocahontas from 1967-1974 and a former League president and vice president.

Amid the uncertainty and health concerns surrounding the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the League hosted the convention and annual business meeting completely online, and it featured a combination of live and pre-recorded sessions with a focus on current events and timely programming for a remote audience of around 1,000 city and town leaders.
