Our friends from the Center for Rural Affairs are kindly reminding our rural entrepreneurs and economic development community that MarketPlace registration is coming up.  MarketPlace is a statewide conference for entrepreneurs, dreamers and economic developers to network, share ideas and learn how to grow their local rural economies.  Our partners over at CFRA have details below and you can register here.

It’s Time to Register for MarketPlace!
