Small Community Forum



the Small Community Forums
Small communities have unique issues and needs that are often very different from those of larger communities. These regional forums are designed to bring together people involved and interested in promoting, enhancing and preserving Wisconsin’s small communities. If you live in, work in, or help shape communities with populations of 2,500 or fewer, attend a session near you to learn through case studies, roundtables and discussion groups. Come with examples of local and regional success stories as well as challenges, and be prepared to share with and learn from colleagues and friends. Everyone in the community and region is invited! Who should attend? Community leaders, elected officials, volunteers, business leaders, educators, local and regional economic development, civic, and planning organizations.
