Helping Wisconsin's Small Cities, Villages & Towns Thrive!

Wisconsin Rural Partners, in partnership with the League of Wisconsin Municipalities, USDA, UW-Extension, Wisconsin Downtown Action Council and the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation, host multiple Small Community Forums annually throughout the state of Wisconsin.  

These forums provide resources and a venue for you, your neighbors, colleagues and friends to discuss the challenges & opportunities of economic growth, education for the 21st Century, civic issues and life in Wisconsin's small (and mighty) communities. 

If you live in, work in, or help shape your small community and/or region, please attend this Forum.  You'll connect, network & talk with representatives from a variety of Statewide resources and discuss with your regional neighborhood what your community needs and can do to grow and thrive into the future.

Who should attend?  Everyone who cares about your Community's future - residents, community leaders, educators, local and regional economic development staff, representatives of civic and planning organizations, elected officials and more.
