2024 Membership Challenge!

Do you like a challenge? Do you know of someone who would benefit from the connecting and networking, personal and professional development (webinars, and annual conference) of NREDA? Well, we have a challenge for you!

The state with the highest total number of new members through October 31st will be recognized at the 2024 National Rural Economic Developers Annual Conference, “The Ripple Effects of Successful Economic Development” to be held November 13-15 in Omaha. You and your state peers could earn some bragging rights!

Do you know who in your state is a member of NREDA? You can look up current members here (note that you must be logged in as a member first), and while you’re at it, please take a few minutes to update your online profile.

Let’s share our NREDA experience with our friends and peers across our states and regions! Once you know who is a member, take a few minutes and think about who you know in your state/region, who should be at the table on rural issues. Then reach out to them with a personal invitation to join NREDA and to invite them to attend this year’s conference! Share your story about connections you've made, both as friends and as professionals, that you would not have met if not for NREDA. Share something you brought back from the conference or something you learned at a regional workshop or webinar.
