Save the Date | May 19-20, 2018

Regards to Rural is the signature event hosted by Rural Development Initiatives. There are now upwards of 400 community members from throughout the Pacific Northwest who gather to inform, inspire and celebrate. . . all that is rural!

At Regards to Rural, participants
  • Gain practical skills for successful rural community and economic development.
  • Learn about successful community revitalization projects from near and far, and how to apply winning concepts to their communities.
  • Receive assistance to ensure their community not only maintains vitality through economic challenges, but uses its strengths to emerge ahead.
  • Connect with other community leaders, funders and elected officials of all ages, backgrounds and experience levels.


June 2015 was the ninth offering of RDI’s semi-annual Regards to Rural conference. The conference brings together industry experts in leadership development, community building, economic development, and rural life along with the rural community members RDI works with every day.

Regards to Rural is our biggest networking event and the best opportunity for us to see the people we work with gathered in one place. We will be back in 2018 with the next Regards to Rural conference. We hope to see you at there!
