Regional Roundtable

Shared challenges, shared solutions.

Our vision: Leaders and funders have the knowledge, relationships and resources necessary to improve the quality of life for everyone in our rural communities.

The Regional Roundtable is a way for leaders from across the region to build relationships, gain knowledge and learn about resources that can improve the quality of life for rural residents. Gatherings focus on shared concerns like building strong workforces and local economies, attracting and retaining young families, and being welcoming to newcomers. 

The mission of the Roundtable, launched in 2018, is to convene a diverse group of leaders from the region to learn about the strengths and needs of our rural communities and connect leaders to the information and financial resources needed to make our region more vibrant and welcoming. 

Each gathering includes time for consideration of local relevancy, discussing options for addressing local needs, and networking among various groups. Topics are determined by regular feedback from group members and all are tied to community vitality.
