The 2007 Rural Summit is underway in the great community of Fallon, Nevada. The Summit is designed to address the many challenges facing the Silver State including energy, growth, healthcare, leadership, affordable housing and economic development.
The Summit will address many of these issues and more through their theme: Developing Nevada’s Future through Leadership. The Summit is presented by the Nevada Rural Development Council.
The Rural Summit features local, state and national speakers, including Nevada’s Rural Legislators and the Honorable Governor Jim Gibbons, to lead the way in providing answers and resources for your rural communities and businesses. All farm, ranch, business, and community leaders are invited to join us on August 28-30, 2007, at the Fallon Convention Center.
The Summit kicked off with a tour of Fallon’s Farmer’s Market, followed by a Welcome Reception with Congressman Dean Heller.
The event continues today and tomorrow, with a wide variety of presentations on issues important to Nevada’s Rurals. Governor Jim Gibbons and Lt. Gov. Brian Krolicki are both scheduled to speak.
