Sponsored by Local First Arizona
As the state’s Rural Development Council (AZRDC), Local First Arizona (LFA) is excited to bring the 2022 conference to Winslow, Arizona. Join us, along with over 300 rural leaders and stakeholders, for capacity-building sessions, receptions, hands-on workshops, and keynote presentations.
The Rural Policy Forum connects rural economic development professionals, community leaders, business owners, nonprofits, and other rural stakeholders and advocates who are interested in sustaining rural communities.
We will hear strategies from national experts as well as learn about success stories from around Arizona that will give our rural leaders the tools, resources, and relationships they need to face current challenges.
The Rural Policy Forum provides skills-building, networking, relationship development, and sharing of best practices and lessons learned relevant to the needs and services in rural Arizona. Activities include capacity-building sessions, networking receptions and focused breakouts, such as the funders’ roundtable, where rural communities and nonprofits can connect their visionary projects and local needs to grant-makers who are potential future partners.
