We’re delighted to announce that the next gathering of the National Rural Assembly will be in St. Paul, Minnesota, on June 28-30 , 2011. Registration for this event will begin in January 2011.
St. Paul is centrally located for participants who will travel to the Assembly. And strong local partners in the Twin Cities will help ensure the success of this gathering of the National Rural Assembly.
As in the previous two gatherings of the National Rural Assembly, rural leaders and advocates will work to bring rural issues to the fore, build a stronger voice for rural America, and examine policy solutions that address the opportunities and challenges of America’s 55 million rural residents.
The National Rural Assembly Steering Committee is currently developing the agenda for the 2011 gathering and will draw on the expertise of Rural Assembly participants as we move forward.
We will share more details about the 2011 National Rural Assembly soon. In the meantime, we hope you’ll hold the June 28-30, 2011, dates.
