Mark your calendars now for the Rural Center’s 2017 Rural Assembly.

The future is what we dare to make it. Will you help lead the way?

The keynote speaker this year is bestselling author, renowned chef, and television host Vivian Howard. Vivian will share a personal story of her return home to rural North Carolina and her journey from a budding rural entrepreneur to television star.
