On Thursday, September 12, National Association of Counties (NACo) will be hosting a webinar: Building Vibrant Local Economies. From 2-3:15 pm EDT, the webinar discuss how many rural places grew around a single industry, such as agriculture or manufacturing. Places relying on one main economic driver often find themselves vulnerable to changing economic, natural, or social conditions. In response, communities across the country are seeking ways to diversify their economies and become more resilient.
Join NACo to learn more about the linkages between economic diversification and place-based approaches to community development.
