Approximately 400 attendees gathered in Albuquerque, New Mexico in early February 2020 for training, networking, and inspiration. Participants came from all over the country, with grantees and Rural Development personnel well represented. We are so grateful to have held it prior to the pandemic which shut down travel and in person events!
Some highlights of the conference included a look at the history of the program from author and educator Tracey K’Meyer, a session on “Impact Without Burnout” from author and trainer Beth Kanter, as well as lots of updates from USDA Rural Development. Forty-two breakout sessions were held on a variety of topics.
The conference was hosted by all four regional technical assistance contractors, NCALL, RCAC, Little Dixie Community Action Agency, and Florida Nonprofit Housing. Support was provided by USDA, Rural Development and NeighborWorks America.
