Welcome

On behalf of the National Rural Economic Developers Association, we cordially invite you to join us at the 2024 NREDA Annual Conference to be held November 13-15 in Omaha, Nebraska! Our theme for this year’s conference is “The Ripple Impacts of Economic Development.”

The annual conference committee has worked diligently to create an agenda offering opportunities for you to hear about and discuss successes and lessons learned on a variety of topics. There will be extra networking opportunities this year with an evening outing to Top Golf Tuesday for those whom are arriving early. Omaha is a vibrant location with a variety of fun activities to enjoy if you plan to come early or stay late, look for the options on the conference app that will be available.

We look forward to seeing you in Omaha in November!
