Effective Tactics for Revolutionizing Rural Communities

Grand Ballroom A


Rural workforce development is a critical area of focus in many states, even in states with smaller rural communities. Join this workshop to gain an understanding of both the challenges and opportunities! Learn what distinguishes the economic and labor market issues in rural regions; what partnerships and strategies are critical to supporting them; and how effective communications can promote outreach and partnerships while supporting state leaders. Four states and a national expert will provide a framework for action.

Moderator: Nate McDonald, Assistant Deputy Executive Director & Communications Director, Utah Department of Workforce Services, and Board President Delegate, NASWA Communications Committee
