2019 AEW Network Annual Conference - June 18-20 in Pikeville, KY


Resources from This and Past Conferences

The AEW Network hosts an annual conference to provide high-level professional development for individuals focused on increasing post-high school education and training access and success in rural places. The two-day conference is held in late June and brings together individuals working in or on behalf of a broad array of institutions and agencies:  school districts, 2- and 4-year colleges and universities, workforce development boards, economic development agencies, community-based advocacy organizations, as well as policymakers from local, regional, state and national levels focused on increasing prosperity. Plenary and workshop sessions introduce participants to “doers and thinkers,” as well as “critics and advocates.” Special workshops showcase the best or promising practices promoting post-high school education and training success in rural America and provide a small group forum in which new professional relationships can be developed.
