The We Kan! Conference will mix elements of the Big Rural Brainstorm into this energetic and positive event designed to promote forward-thinking and action for Kansas communities.
What is the conference about? Dozens of topics that effect communities will be addressed from a success-and-informative standpoint. The added-value component will be discussion about how that particular issue could be reshaped in the future.
Who are the presenters? The presenters will be those among you who have found solutions, great ideas, or pathways that work.
What format will be used? There will be large group, breakout and Speed Meeting sessions. There will be questions on the wall to fill out. Experts will be on call all day. There will be an opportunity for participants to have input. Prompts for discussion will be shared with those who register. In the next couple of weeks, more details about sessions will be shared.
Who should attend? Community leaders, dynamic doers, economic or community development directors, tourism people, entrepreneurs, and chambers of commerce, especially from rural communities. Small communities, this is especially designed for you!
