Registration is now open for the 2014 N.C. Rural Assembly, which will be held Thursday, October 30 in Raleigh. We took a break last year from hosting our annual gathering, but the Rural Center's signature event is returning this fall, with a new name, a new venue and a new strategic action plan for addressing the future of rural economic development.


Anticipate spending the entire day with us — the 2014 N.C. Rural Assembly will be packed with dynamic speakers, thoughtful discussions and the networking and fellowship our events have long been known for.


Check out the agenda here, and guarantee your spot at the Assembly by registering today. Registration is only $95, and will include meals.
