The Valley County Community Foundation Fund (VCCFF) would like to invite local leaders who are passionate about the future of Valley County to participate in an upcoming young leadership summit. The annual Connecting Young Nebraskans Summit goals are to engage young Nebraskans and give them an opportunity to meet peers from across the state.
Connecting Young Nebraskans (CYN) is a network of emerging leaders who are living in Nebraska. The network strives to encourage a forward-looking organization that provides opportunities to shape the state’s future by sharing knowledge, insights and desires. CYN opens a new avenue to encourage and support the participation of those under 40 who live in rural areas. Young leaders can have an important impact on their communities and the state.
This year the Summit will be held in West Point, Nebraska on October 27th and 28th. The Summit kicks off with a Thursday evening social including appetizers and a glow golf outing. On Friday, participants will listen to keynote speakers Jeff Slobotski and Dusty Davidson, founders of Silicon Prairie News and take part in round table discussions with others who care about the future of their local communities and state.
