State of Rural Conversation Series

Here at RDI, we’re constantly inspired by rural people, places, and businesses and are eager to share the State of Rural with you and your community. To express our excitement, RDI is launching a free “State of Rural Conversation Series” with our expert staff. If your community is interested in learning how your town or region fares economically, we’ll gather local economic data and trends and create a snapshot for you. Our in-house economic vitality staff will then facilitate a conversation about how you can use this information to help advance your economic goals.
RDI is happy to join you at a Chamber breakfast, Community/Economic Development Commission function, Main Street meeting, City Council work session, or any other community event. If you or your organization is interested in playing host, please contact Michael Held, RDI’s Director of Policy and Economic Services, at or by phone at 541.684.9077 ext. 7033 for more details.
