2012 Rural Community Conference - The Future of Rural

About the RCC

What characteristics must communities develop and maintain in order to flourish? What legacy will be left to our rural communities? What will the population of Montana look like in the future, and how can these changes be addressed? This is your chance to share, learn, connect and mobilize with others dedicated to creating a bright future for rural Montana. Find solutions, share success stories, adopt new tools, and leave ready to move from waiting to leading, from talk to action.
