(Conference) Rural Alberta Innovation & Learning Commons

October 2, 2015 @ 3:00 pm - October 4, 2015 @ 2:15 pm

$100 – $175

We are pleased to invite you to the 2015 Rural Alberta Innovation & Learning Commons: Alberta’s premier forum for rural knowledge exchange and network development.

Taking place October 2nd to the 4th, BRAED and the ACSRC are working together to bring you a three-day learning commons focused on rural economic and community development.
Recognizing a large gap in educational training opportunities focused on rural economic development, we have formed a committee to design and build what is sure to be an exceptional learning forum for councillors, mayors, CAOs, EDOs, economic and community development professionals, and students from across the Province.
Concentrating on subject matter such as rural policy and governance, social policy and services, tapping into natural resources, investment attraction, business succession strategies, infrastructure, transportation and logistics, youth retention and recruitment, and more, this Learning Commons will offer a variety of opportunities to increase the knowledge capacity of municipal officials, professionals and students in Alberta.
This commons is a great opportunity for councilors, mayors, CAOs, EDOs, community development professionals, and students from across the province to engage in various rurally focused topics such as: community and economic development, sustainability planning, social policy, water, continuing care, recruitment and retention, business succession, aboriginal relations and the changing agricultural landscape.
