Connect With Our National Audience

Expand your reach and showcase your products and services with hundreds of rural education leaders, decision makers, and practitioners from across the country at the 2023 National Forum to Advance Rural Education.

The 2023 National Forum to Advance Rural Education will be hybrid again this year, which means we will host an in-person event in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and provide the option to attend virtually. Like always, the event is designed to create an environment for collaboration and innovation with a diverse community that includes national experts, K–12 and higher education practitioners, leading researchers, policymakers, and philanthropic leaders.

We are seeking partnerships with sponsors who share our vision and commitment to support rural school districts. Together, with your investment, we will be able to offer rural educators a dynamic and impactful professional learning and networking experience.
