Learn - Webinars on Positive Trends Impacting the Great Plains States


Extension Research Associate Ben Winchester will be part of an upcoming opportunity to learn about trends impacting rural communities. In his words:
Starting January 13, 2016, the Rural Business Program at the University of Texas at San Antonio – Institute for Economic Development is teaming up with the University of Nebraska, Sam Houston State University and the University of Minnesota to bring you a quality rural webinar series.
This no-cost webinar series will focus on positive trends impacting the Great Plains states from Minnesota to Texas and places in-between. This monthly series is offered to local elected officials, economic development specialists, housing agencies, and others engaged in rural development practices.
