Tell the National Rural Assembly what’s important to you

This may or may not be broadband related – but it is an opportunity to speak your piece…

The National Rural Assembly needs YOUR input now!  We are working on a “big ideas” initiative with support from The Duke Endowment. We are convening a diverse group of 40 rural leaders, February 21-23, for some creative and intense brainstorming. We’ll ask them to put forward their best thinking around how we achieve a stronger, more just nation, and we hope to emerge with one or more “big ideas” that can be carried forward in rural America.

You can participate in this initiative and in the ensuing work from your desk! Please complete one or all of these steps:

  1. Fill out the initial participant questionnaire. Your responses will be shared on the Rural Assembly Big Ideas webpage and with those gathering in February.

  2. Give us your big idea: Just open with, “What If We…” and email it to us. We’ll share your Big Ideas with meeting participants, and we may ask you to expand it as a blog post.

  3. Follow the Big Ideas Forum on ourFacebookand Twitter platforms. Use #ruralbigideas
