Written by broebling on October 4, 2018
Press Release – Campbell County is partnering with the National Association of Counties to host Strengthening Economies in Wyoming: A Forum for Coal-Reliant Communities, a free forum designed for coal-reliant counties and regions across Wyoming. This convening will bring together stakeholders from the public and private sectors for an educational and interactive gathering to share best practices, lessons learned and new opportunities to support economic diversification.
The conference will be held at the CAM-PLEX Energy Hall, October 8-9, with optional tours being offered on October 10.
The agenda contains an impressive array of presenters, from federal agencies, such as the Office of Fossil Energy and the U.S. Department of Rural Development. Various presenters from across Wyoming, including Governor Matt Mead, are also slated to cover topics of interest to Wyoming communities.
The forum will offer ample opportunity to network with peers, state and federal officials and other practitioners who are promoting economic and community development at the local, regional and state levels. All interested community stakeholders from Wyoming are welcome to attend, including county and other local officials; regional development organization staff; workforce development professionals; non-profit and philanthropic leaders; business owners; and representatives from K-12 and higher education institutions.
While this forum is encouraged for Wyoming communities economically linked to the coal industry and forum content will focus on strategies and opportunities unique to Wyoming, attendance is open to all interested coal-impacted communities across the Western region.
