The twelfth annual series of Small Community Forums will be held in four locations in October and November, to facilitate dialogue between small communities, address common issues, network, share best practices, and identify strategies to address shared concerns. Representatives from many state and regional resource partners will be on hand to connect with attendees and provide guidance on specific concerns introduced during the sessions.

These convenings are about sharing ideas, learning and networking concerning the health and future of rural Wisconsin. People interested in small town and rural Wisconsin are invited to attend, including those involved in quality-of-life issues, business, government, education, the non-profit sector, civic and community development.

The fee for each Forum is $20, which includes materials, morning coffee and light refreshments, and lunch.
