Location, Lodging, Display Table Information

Again this year, the BMA of Arkansas has accepted an invitation from Central Baptist College of Conway to gather on the CBC campus for their annual meeting. The following information about that meeting has been supplied by the CBC staff:


The city of Conway has designated “fire lanes” with red curbs and signs throughout the campus. Please understand that the Conway City Police has jurisdiction of these areas, even though they are on CBC property. Tickets for parking in a fire lane are very expensive, and we have no control over them. The safety of our employees, students and guests is our highest priority.

The same rules apply to parking on any of the adjacent streets around campus. These are marked with “no parking” signs. The City of Conway patrols those areas and tickets will be issued for any vehicles parked there.

Central Baptist College employees and students will park off-campus Friday to make room for meeting attendees.

Golf cart shuttles will run frequently both Thursday and Friday.

All parking spaces on the south and west sides of the Cooper Complex will be designated “handicapped parking” for the duration of the meeting.

Display Tables

Tables will be assigned in the Cooper Complex for those who want to set up a display during our State Meeting. CBC will provide one large 8-foot table. Additional tables will be $25 each. Please let us know if electricity is needed when reserving your table.

RSVP deadline will be Friday, Oct. 26. Setup will be 3-5 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 31; and will begin as early as 7 a.m., Thursday, Nov. 1. Please RSVP to Duffy Guyton at (501) 205-8920 or dguyton@cbc.edu.
