2015 Rural Assembly: Welcoming speakers from across the country

The National Rural Assembly is pleased to welcome a fantastic group of speakers and presenters to this year’s Gathering. 

Get to know them here.

Our speakers come from across the country and represent rural stakeholders at every level, from local government and grassroots organizations to national nonprofits and policy officials.

You’ll hear voices from Appalachia, the Deep South, Indian Country, the West Coast, Middle America, and Washington, D.C.  We’ve thrown in one or two from Vermont, too.

They’ll talk about climate change, philanthropy, child poverty, community organizing, health, education, youth leadership, and broadband, all within the frame of how we build a more inclusive nation.

Join this cast of presenters and many more inspiring rural leaders at the 2015 National Rural Assembly.

If you haven’t registered and booked your room, now is the time.
