Labeled an "un-conference" because of the lack of traditional break-out sessions, the event will feature a revolving array of small and large networking groups that provide an opportunity for attendees to lend help and receive help on community, business, or personal issues.
Foundation director Marci Penner said, "We're looking for people in rural communities who feel isolated and don't know where to turn for answers, support and resources. Whether you are a president of the bank or a bank teller, if you are feeling like there is more to give and get out of rural community living, we invite you to be part of this positive environment. We will match you up with people who have answers or can guide you. Small town, big city, we welcome everyone to this."
Held at the Sundstrom Conference Center, the Big Rural Brainstorm will take place from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. with a "Warm-Up Round" at 9 a.m. Registration fee is $60.
