Hazlett to Hold North Dakota Roundtable Thursday
North Dakota Ag Connection - 02/14/2018
Assistant to the Secretary for Rural Development Anne Hazlett will be in North Dakota on Feb. 15 to host a rural prosperity roundtable with federal, state and community leaders.
Hazlett and Rural Development State Director Clare Carlson host a roundtable to discuss innovative partnerships that have been developed to overcome challenges in rural areas and explore best practices to build and support community economic resiliency.
There will be a focus on e-connectivity as a tool to improve quality of life and ensure prosperity in rural communities. Technology allows medical, educational, and business services to travel virtually to remote areas and can enrich rural life immeasurably.
There will also be a tour given of the Dakota Carrier Network facility, where the roundtable will take place beginning at 10 a.m.
