Community Building in Your

Small Town 

Every small town has divisions between people and between competing organizations.

No one tells you how to overcome divisions between people and build a unified sense of community.

You’ll learn to:

  • Convert existing projects to bring people together

  • Improve group coordination

  • Rally everyone around local small businesses.

 

Hear examples from other communities of events and actions they've taken to build a more unified community.

Deb Brown
SaveYour.Town

Deb grew up on a farm outside of Geneva, Iowa, population 141. Her first entrepreneurial venture was raising a hog. You’d find her either with her nose in a history book or out exploring abandoned houses and buildings. Funny, things haven’t changed much, she’s still working on filling empty buildings in small towns.

A wealth of experience includes leading a small town chamber of commerce, foreign casualty insurance underwriting, bartending, retail management, selling knives, and working with small towns. Deb has lived in tiny towns, small towns, small cities and a major metro city. Yet, she’s come home to a small town, Webster City, Iowa, and travels to many others to help. Deb is a relentless optimist and knows how to build possibility in your small town. Better yet, she inspires you to take small steps towards a brighter future for your community.
