About the Northwest Arkansas Council

Established by Sam Walton, Don Tyson, J.B. Hunt and other business leaders, we are a private, nonprofit organization working to advance job opportunities, talent recruitment, physical infrastructure, health care and quality of life. Most of the Council’s more than 100 members are companies, including Walmart, Tyson Foods, J.B. Hunt Transport Services, Inc., Simmons Foods and George’s, Inc.

Over the years, we supported the development of new roads and thriving downtown squares and helped shape cultural destinations like Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Walmart AMP, Arvest Ballpark, Scott Family Amazeum, The Momentary, Walton Arts Center, TheatreSquared, University of Arkansas and the Razorback Regional Greenway. There’s more on the horizon, from the Lake Frances Water Park near Siloam Springs to the Cultural Arts Corridor in downtown Fayetteville.
