The 2015 N.C. Rural Assembly, “Cultivating Connectivity: Leveraging Broadband to Accelerate Opportunity," is in the history books and was a resounding success. Approximately 400 of you joined us September 28-29 to hear from federal, state and private sector broadband experts. If you missed it, or if you attended and are interested in reviewing what you experienced, click for:

•    A directory of agendas, speaker presentations, videos and other materials that many of you have asked to receive, plus a directory of Rural Assembly attendees;
•    A straight-forward, five-step approach to what any community can do right now to work toward improving their broadband connectivity. This piece is authored by Joe Freddoso, co-founder of Mighty River LLC and former CEO of MCNC,  who assisted the Rural Center in delivering a first-class conference agenda;
•    The powerful keynote address delivered by Jonathan Chambers, chief of the office of strategic planning and policy analysis for the FCC;
•    Constructive feedback from our attendees to assist us in planning the 2016 N.C. Rural Assembly.

If you have ideas about how we could make next year's conference even better, please let us know by dropping a note to: info@ncruralcenter.org.
 
We are already working toward the 2016 N.C. Rural Assembly. Next year's event will be held at the same venue, on September 26-27, 2016. Mark your calendars!
