Sustain rural America through education, collaboration, and leadership development.
Rural communities are inspiring places to live – people are always there to lend a hand and support one another through challenges and disasters. Rural communities also face unique challenges – the outmigration of talented workers, aging infrastructures, and consolidation into larger, less local systems. A Huron senior director, Tad Hunt, who oversees the rural and critical access segment, discusses with Janet how we can collaborate to overcome the challenges facing rural America, ultimately creating stronger communities for people to live and work.
This episode addresses questions, such as:
- In what ways do education and healthcare have the greatest opportunities to work together to strengthen the community?
- What makes rural communities unique?
- What best practices support cross-community collaboration?

9P | BUILD STRONG BOARD RELATIONSHIPS
Private and public boards are complex in nature, but all share the common theme of bringing people from different organizations and backgrounds together for a mutual purpose. Whether that purpose is to serve the community or a publicly-traded organization, a board must function as a unit. Bringing highly successful people together and expecting an easily collaborative relationship may be tougher than expected.
