Our Story

Formed in 2009 as the Arthur Area Economic Development Corporation, a group of volunteer community leaders recognized the importance of investing in the growth of the Arthur Area. Today the organization known as Simply Arthur is composed of 12 Board of Directors with the same commitment of making the Arthur Area a thriving place to live, a place to work, and a great place to visit.

Within the organization itself there are three committees: Business Advocacy, Economic Development, and Tourism. 

Business Advocacy's focus is to strive to bring a collaborative environment between area businesses with those in community development to enhance Arthur and the surrounding area.
