CFGD Hosting Rural Leadership Summit in Edgewood

The Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque is hosting a rural leadership summit in Edgewood today.

Community leaders will gather at the Edgewood Locker Event Center from 10 to 2:30 to talk about attracting and engaging new and returning residents. Today’s keynote speaker is Ben Winchester, a rural sociologist and senior research fellow for the University of Minnesota Extension’s Center for Community Vitality. There will also be a panel of local community leaders discussing ways that communities are welcoming and integrating newcomers.

Today’s event was originally scheduled for last month, but was rescheduled due to inclement weather.
