The Rural Summit brings together leaders, practitioners, educators, and community members to explore proven strategies for building resilient and prosperous communities.
Last year's Rural Summit saw more than 300 attendees engaged in interactive sessions and keynotes that explored how school readiness, mental wellness, and workforce development are central to our region’s success. This year’s summit will build on those learnings, with a focus on data-informed strategies that can lift rural communities and move our region forward.
Day one of the 2023 Rural Summit features several keynotes and an evening reception, and day two includes multiple workshop sessions running concurrently. Use the navigation to the left to explore this two-day conference and we hope to see you there!
