The will be held at the North Platte Area Chamber of Commerce at 502 So. Dewey.

Participants will learn how to work with legislators and other decision makers to advance their views, identify strategies and tactics to gain influence on rural issues, and work with the media to tell their story.

Rural health care affordability, small business entrepreneurship and fair Nebraska tax policy will also be discussed.

According to Virginia Meyer with the Center for Rural Affairs, the purpose of the training is to continue to develop a core group of active leaders to speak up and advocate for affordable health care, entrepreneurial development, small business and fair taxes in rural Nebraska.

Attendees will gain the skills they need to be successful advocates before the state Legislature and beyond.

“With a core group of active leaders we can build momentum and create policy that benefits rural Nebraskans,” said Meyer.

The Center encourages folks to attend, but space is limited so they must RSVP no later than March 6 by contacting Meyer at virginiam@cfra.org or at 402-687-2100. Lunch and light refreshments will be provided.
