In the statewide North Carolina Rural Center Summer Road Trip series, staff will share a regionalized version of the statewide publication “Forces Driving Change in Rural North Carolina,” an examination of eight major forces driving change in modern rural communities. There will also be a question and answer session and a time for discussion among meeting participants.
Data and stories from the tour will be featured at the Center’s 2024 Rural Summit in Raleigh and will also be used to refine and deepen its publications and research.
