This Emerging Issues Forum will examine the interconnectedness of rural, suburban, and urban economies, and strategies to more effectively promote and leverage these connections for increased success.  Learn more and register today!

Scholarships (free tickets) are available to increase geographic, demographic and economic representation at our Rural and Urban Forum.  Thanks to a specific contributor to our fund, some scholarships are reserved exclusively for residents living in Eastern North Carolina (i.e. counties along and to the east of I-95), especially those living in the region’s most economically distressed counties.  For more information about our scholarships, please visit our website or contact IEI staff at 919-515-7741 for more details.
