Rural Assembly

2019 NC Rural Assembly Registration is Open!

We know no two rural communities are the same. Each place has its own unique sets of assets– and its own persistent challenges. Join us at this year’s NC Rural Assembly as we take a closer look at rural communities from around the state and nation who are building their own distinct economies and establishing their own specific identities. 
Though the origin stories and end results may be different, a common theme is persistent in any economically vibrant small town or rural community: Creativity–the ability to fearlessly transcend traditional ideas, expectations, and practices to create meaningful results that improve quality of life and improve economic sustainability. 
Join us November 21-22 for two days full of content, conversation and celebration at the 2019 Rural Assembly and leave inspired and equipped with the tools and knowledge to take your community from surviving to thriving.
