The Right Place Launches 2nd Round of Rural Round Table Sessions
Back by popular demand, The Right Place Rural Team presents the second round of our virtual round table series Re-Engaging the Rural Economy - in partnership with the Ionia County Economic Alliance, Lake County Economic Development Alliance, Montcalm Economic Alliance, Newaygo County Economic Development Advisory Committee, Oceana County Economic Alliance with generous support from Consumers Energy.
When we held our first series of roundtables back in May, we had folks from 20 Michigan counties attend at least one session, so it is definitely a regional focus. Feel free to share with others in your communities and organizations that you think would benefit from these best practices and idea sharing. A rising tide lifts all boats!

The focus of this follow-up to our impactful series this summer: to convene business owners & leaders from multiple sectors of the economy in our rural West Michigan counties to share best practices, build networks and learn from each other as we continue to weather the storm of COVID-19
. Businesses can learn a great deal from their peers across the region to help them be resilient during this crisis and position themselves for success as we strive toward economic recovery.
Our lineup includes:

Sessions are open to any business/organization throughout West Michigan, with a focus on those operating in rural communities. While each session will include a brief presentation from a subject matter expert or peers demonstrating success in the field, the bulk of each virtual round table will be interactive peer-to-peer discussion.
