Texas Rural Challenge

Texas Rural Challenge

The Texas Rural Challenge is back for 2021!

This year the Texas Rural Challenge will be held on July 13th and 14th and will be completely virtual to ensure the safety of all participants. Best of all, thanks to our sponsors and exhibitors, there is no cost to attend!

The Texas Rural Challenge features a wide range of best practices, collaboration opportunities, and ‘how-to’ learning experiences aimed at putting big ideas into practice. The Texas Rural Challenge focuses on business and economic development, community development, and rural issues, with presentations and workshops by top innovators and change agents from across state and federal agencies and the private sector.

This year, our theme will be ‘The Road to Resiliency’ which we thought was fitting after the historic year that everyone just endured. The primary objective of TRC 2021 is to provide rural small businesses and governments with the information and resources available to them to survive and thrive during (and after) the pandemic.

Our conference schedule is filling up with engaging speakers prepared to deliver quality sessions! Here is a sample of some of the sessions we have in store for Texas Rural Challenge 2021:

  • Rural Broadband in Texas
  • Understanding COVID-19 Tax Relief and Regulations
  • Overview of the Texas College Savings Plan
  • Agra Cybersecurity
  • After The COVID Storm: Small Business and Workforce Comeback
  • More will be announced soon……
