1NKY Frankfort, a new hub for sponsoring NKY organizations and businesses to convene, strategize, advocate and provide collective impact, is now open.

The facility, an initiative of the Northern Kentucky Regional Alliance, is located at 418 Capital Avenue in Frankfort, within walking distance of the Kentucky State Capital. It offers NKY businesses an opportunity to have a consistent presence and provide a unified voice on important issues to our region.

“We are very excited to open this facility,” said Garren Colvin, Northern Kentucky Regional Alliance Board Member and President/CEO of St. Elizabeth Healthcare, who led the initiative. “For the first time, Northern Kentucky organizations will have a place to come together in the heart of the capital and work together to advocate for issues that transform Northern Kentucky and move the region forward.”

“We continue to position Northern Kentucky for growth along with our community organizations,” said Kay Geiger, Northern Kentucky Regional Alliance Board Chair and PNC Regional President for Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky. 

“Establishing a permanent presence in the capital is just one of the many initiatives we have identified with the goal of propelling Northern Kentucky as one of the lead places to work, live and do business.”
