The Rural Summit makes it’s debut at the 40th Annual Community Radio Conference this year. Over 60% of NFCB members are serving rural areas across the country.
Is your station serving a rural population? Do you often feel that you have to translate everything you hear from “experts” so that it makes sense for your context and setting? Join us at the Rural Summit for an interactive facilitated discussion on the opportunities and challenges that you face as rural community media providers.
We’ll be delving into such issues as emergency response and preparedness, climate change and agricultural communities, and providing local journalism in rural areas. This summit will be action oriented and focused on identifying concrete strategies to move rural community radio forward. Set the tone of your conference experience with a meeting of the rural minds at this first ever rural summit.
