What is ECN?
The Elkins Community Network is a not-for-profit organization founded in 2021 that focuses on engagement, empowerment, and enhancement in the Elkins-area community. Elkins Community Network is registered with the State of Arkansas and is a 501c3 non-profit organization with the IRS.
Through all of our efforts, our goal is to connect community members and community organizations through information, opportunities, and potentially shared resources. These efforts are designed to amplify and expand current community improvement efforts. Organizations could include anything from local businesses, government resources, and family activities.
ECN was born out of the Elkins-Area Business Networking Group (EABN), which was a grassroots business networking organization we started in 2019. Based on the group’s success, feedback, and further research, organizers decided to expand the organization’s scope to include the entire community. EABN will remain under the Elkins Community Network as the business community and community at large continue to build relationships for the benefit of all.
