This June, Dakota Resources and Dakota Wesleyan University are partnering for a two-day economic and community development event: RuralX brings rural champions together to discover and share new ideas, tools and processes for rural development.

The event is open to anyone with a desire to make an impact on rural communities. With a dynamic format, national keynote speakers, breakout sessions, networking, creative solutions and youth involvement, RuralX is designed to energized and motivate new initiatives, pop-up businesses, city beautification projects, fundraisers, citywide events, and economic development groups.

“The ripple effect from RuralX keeps coming back to us in success stories across the region. If you are a person who cares about your rural community and you want to connect to smart, motivated people who are doing great things in rural places, then you belong at RuralX,” says Joe Bartmann, President at Dakota Resources. “We feel our partnership with DWU and their added rural expertise will make this our best year yet.”
