WI Rural Partners to host 2020 summit
For the City Times
WOOD COUNTY – “Vibrant Rural Communities: From Talk to Action” is the theme of the 2020 Wisconsin Rural Summit – an event that brings together people who care about the future of their community.
This is the first time the annual statewide event is being held in Central Wisconsin. This year’s theme focuses on how small cities, villages, and towns are taking positive steps to shape a bright future.
The Rural Summit will be held in Marshfield on April 22-23.
The summit starts with an optional half day bus tour on Wednesday and features an all-day program on Thursday. Keynote, Deb Brown, from SaveYour.town, will be followed by break-out sessions on housing, renewable energy, funding community projects, farm safety, natural resources, and other subjects.
The summit is hosted by Wisconsin Rural Partners, a statewide nonprofit organization that brings together a cross section of residents, organizations, and leaders that cross political affiliations and organizational boundaries to advance initiatives important to rural communities throughout the state.
