Carnall Hall


Traveling speakers will stay at the Inn at Carnall Hall in Fayetteville, Arkansas, located on the University of Arkansas campus. The Inn at Carnall Hall is a member of the Historic Hotels of America. Built in 1906, it served as the first women's dormitory on campus. A $6.9m restoration in 2001 brought Carnall Hall back to its original condition. The building was restored with the goal of protecting the original integrity of the architectural style, the building materials, and the ambiance.

Traveling participants will stay at the Candlewood Suites in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Candlewood Suites is less than a 10 minute drive from campus. We have arranged for ground transportation from the hotel to campus, where the workshop will be held, in the mornings and evenings of October 27 and 28. We also arranged for ground transportation from the hotel to Bordino’s restaurant on October 26, where our first dinner will take place.



Walker Hall
Presentations will be given in Walker Hall. The rooms are:
WJWH 218: Auditorium
WJWH 203: H. L. Hembree Room

The Willard J. Walker Hall, completed in summer 2007, was named in honor of the late Willard Walker, a leader in the development of Wal-Mart Stores Inc. This state of the art building holds several high-tech spaces made possible through an 8 million gift from the Pat and Willard Walker Charitable Foundation. The building is part of the prestigious Sam M. Walton College of Business whose MBA program has been ranked 25th among public graduate business schools in the USA for 2011 by the U.S. News & World Report’s America’s Best Graduate Schools.
