Young Leaders Day – Register Now!

The National Rural Assembly is excited to provide a Young Leaders Day focused on policy professional development, happening just prior to the full gathering of the National Rural Assembly.

We are inviting young adults working in rural communities to join us on September 8, for a full day of professional development across policy and communications.

Space is limited so register soon!

Join us to learn the theory of framing, understand the research proven frames for rural issues, and apply this knowledge to your own practice. You’ll strengthen your policy toolkit and apply this training to your immediate day to day work. From writing a successful grant proposal, to championing a specific policy change, to demanding rural issues be an integral part of the 2016 candidates’ platforms, knowing how to strategically frame your rural message is critical.

We especially encourage executive directors and program directors to consider sending young leaders from their organization or community.  The National Rural Assembly welcomes the opportunity to partner with you!

Next steps:

  1. Register here.
  2. If needed, request a scholarship.
  3. Book your hotel room by August 18.
  4. Share this information with your networks!

Space is limited to rural leaders ages 22-30. Additional registration cost $50.
