Smart(er) communities, rural and urban, collaborate and use collective resources to create a place for people of all ages to live, work, and thrive in 21st-century environments that require robust data and broadband connections. We'll focus on topics such as:

  • “Smart” communities
  • Collaborative Leadership
  • Growing rural/urban economies
  • Making the most of limited budgets
  • Accelerating the implementation of new digital solutions
