"Making Your Rural Advocacy Voice Heard"

Join us on June 26 as NREDA’s Rural Issues Committee speaks to the role of strong advocacy in the public policy arena as a tool to support rural economic development. We’ll unpack real success stories about programs that we believe in and support to help illuminate the value of those programs. We’ll also be joined by a public policy and advocacy expert to help break down how we can use those winning experiences to become stronger advocates for programs in front of policymakers. The goal is to showcase what NREDA initiatives are providing value in real-time and how you can be the best possible advocate for those programs.
