It is important to note that while the AGFC Little Rock Office Complex currently is open to the public, because of the COVID-19 coronavirus public health emergency and depending upon public health conditions in our state at that time, the general public may be unable to gather in the meeting room on January 20 and 21. In-person attendance at the meetings may be limited to only Commission members, the Director, representatives of the media, and other individuals necessary to the proceedings as determined by the Commission Chairman and Director.
