2014 Create WV Conference to be hosted in Glenville

Posted: Updated:

A group that tries to improve local economies in the state will host its 2014 conference in Glenville.

Create West Virginia officials said Monday the conference will be held Oct. 25 through 28 at Glenville State College.

Create West Virginia is an independent, grassroots group focused on building creative communities, companies and centers of learning geared toward an "innovation economy."

Last year's conference was held in Richwood. Previous gatherings were held at large venues in places like Charleston, Huntington and Lewis County's Stonewall Resort.

This will be the first time the annual conference will be held in affiliation with a higher education institution.
