RuralRISE Summit Virtual Only Platform 2020

After careful consideration, the RuralRISE Summit Working Group has decided to move the RuralRISE Summit to a virtual platform for Summer 2020.

We will be sending out details in the next few weeks! 

We truly believe that this "Virtual Summit" will allow us to share valuable information, resources, speakers, and programming to assist everyone working in Rural to recover from the impact of COVID-19. Currently, the RuralRISE network is more essential than ever, as we work together to share challenges, opportunities, and resources.

As always, we will be enlisting you the "RuralRISE Community" to assist us. We plan to be "in-person" in 2021 - details at a later date.
