Similar challenges in each community included, skilled labor force, housing, early childhood development and infrastructure. The Valentine Economic Development program hosted the event which included information on board development and what local high school and college education is doing to prepare youth for careers. There were also reports from Maxine Moul, head of USDA rural development and Connie Hancock from UNL extension. The goal of the gathering was to help communities make connections with each other and share information on successful programs that could be utilized in other locations.
