As a follow-up to the Rural Study findings presented to the regions, the Rural Economic Development Boot camp is intended to complement the activities undertaken by local and regional economic development organizations. The event features keynote presentations by Governor Rick Scott, Secretary of Commerce Gray Swoope, DEO Director Jesse Panuccio, and rural study author Del Boyette. Breakout sessions will cover a variety of topics such as discovering programs available to help rural communities and regions, accurately identifying your community’s assets, and effectively telling your community or region's compelling story. The Rural Boot Camp will benefit economic development professionals, elected officials, volunteers or anyone interested in helping to grow their community and the region.
