Who Attends?

Every citizen that is interested in making their community better tomorrow than it is today has a seat at one or more of the workshops.  Primarily we get participants from chambers of commerce, economic development, city and county government, planners, board members and those that work with boards, educators, grant writers, consultants, business owners, landowners and many other segments of rural communities.

Why do they attend?

Workshops are very applied, hands-on, interactive sessions with the most knowledgeable practitioners we can find.  They focus on your challenges and opportunities and help you solve your problems and answer your questions.  You will leave all our workshops with new tools, skills and knowledge that can be implemented as soon as you get back to work.

Educational Programs

TCRE educational programs enhance the ability of rural communities to plan for sustainable economic activity by building a team of trained leaders. Current opportunities continue to focus on this purpose while expanding into workshops with more of a focus on business development.

TCRE's fee-based educational workshops focus on arming participants with the information, tools and programs to help them find excellence in their communities. Workshop topics deal with issues related to community, economic, business and leadership development especially in rural communities.

TCRE workshops are taught by an impressive group of experienced trainers and experts. What you learn from these knowledge-based presentations will help you to enhance your community development skills by recognizing new and existing resources.
