Put aside everything you know about typical networking events and join us on September 27th for CONNECT 2018: The Rural Advantage! The inaugural Radically Rural summit includes our highly attended annual networking event, CONNECT2018 – an annual gathering of hundreds engaged, locally focused community members celebrating and fostering the advantages and opportunities of rural living.

Check out CONNECT’s Sculpture Gallery!
Once again, CONNECT is staged by Machina Arts, a local events company that often uses local artists in its presentations. This year, 14 local artists will display their work in a sculpture gallery on the floor of the Mabel Brown Room and in the balcony.
