Webinar to Spotlight Modernizing Rural Infrastructure

Cindy Zimmerman

How can we create more jobs in Rural America?

That question is at the heart of an upcoming April 7 Agri-Pulse Communications, Inc. webinar, “Rural renaissance: How investments in transmission modernization can drive rural economic development.” This complimentary one-hour program will discuss expanding and modernizing the electrical grid in Rural America.

“As more people and companies look at escaping crowded urban areas and finding their place in Rural America, it’s important for them to have reliable infrastructure,” says Agri-Pulse Founder and Editor Sara Wyant, who will moderate the event. “Our conversation will cover not only current conditions, but we’ll discuss much-needed improvements.”

Speakers include USDA Undersecretary for Rural Development Xochitl Torres Small, Congressman Frank Lucas, USDA Administrator of the Rural Utilities Service Chris McLean, Americans for a Clean Energy Grid executive director Rob Gramlich, and Denise Bode with Michael Best Strategies.

The webinar will take place at 11 a.m. ET and is sponsored by the Americans for a Clean Energy Grid. Speakers will address how expanding, integrating and modernizing the North American high-voltage grid can drive rural economic development.
