Event description

Description

The Hannah Grimes Center will host a symposium to further explore how rural communities can reinvent, connect and empower their Main Street’s and downtowns.

The Federal Reserve Bank of Boston has committed to a multiyear, multistate funding initiative in New England – the “Working Cities Challenge” – which has made great strides in smaller industrial cities with community-based efforts to tackle social and economic challenges. Key lessons learned and plans for the expanding the project will be presented by Anthony Poore, Deputy Director of Regional and Community Outreach at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston.

Following the presentation, a discussion on how this model could shape New Hampshire systems and make impactful change in rural communities and downtowns. Statewide system leaders will be a part of the discussion, including:

  • Taylor Caswell, Commissioner, New Hampshire Department of Business Affairs; and
  • Richard Ober, President and CEO, New Hampshire Charitable Foundation.

Discussion will be moderated by: Mary Ann Kristiansen, Executive Director, The Hannah Grimes Center.

A light breakfast will be served at 8:30AM with the workshop beginning promptly at 9AM. Deadline to register is November 1. Space is limited.

If you plan to attend the CONNECT event the night prior, or any of the other ItoIHub events, discounted rates are available at the Courtyard Marriott in Downtown Keene.
