On June 19-20, Dakota Resources will once again bring ruralX to Mitchell in an effort to bring rural shapers together from across the region to discover and share new ideas, tools and processes for rural development.

The event will be held in Mitchell for its consecutive second year, and will take place inside the Mitchell Wesleyan Church.

“The location is great for hosting an event like ruralX,” explains Dakota Resources President Joe Bartmann. “It is a huge, new church with big rooms for multi-media presentations, tons of break out spaces, nice lounge areas and even a coffee shop. We are very excited to have all we need under one roof.”

The team at Dakota Resources says ruralX is open to anyone with a desire to make an impact on our rural communities. The event typically draws between 150-200 people from across the state, where they can expect a dynamic experience that includes national keynote speakers, breakout sessions, networking, creative solutions and youth involvement. Past attendees have gone back to their communities motivated to connect and learn from one another, jumpstart community events, open pop-up shops and explore new avenues for economic development.

“Save the date for ruralX! If you are a person who cares about your rural community and you want to connect with people who also have a passion to help our rural places thrive, then you belong at ruralX,” says Joe Bartmann, President at Dakota Resources.

RuralX will be held June 19 and 20 in Mitchell at Mitchell Wesleyan Church. To find more information about speakers, agenda and registration, visit www.dakotaresources.org/ruralx or contact Dakota Resources at Cheryl@dakotaresources.org.
