The Fahe 2018 Annual Meeting in Charleston, WV was a huge success. First, a huge “thank you” to all the Fahe Members. Your leadership on the ground is what creates resilient Appalachian communities. We’re thankful for the experience and expertise you bring to the Annual Meetings and the Network every day. We had a great time in Charleston, WV with our panels, breakout sessions, and trainings. As always, it was a great time to reconnect, share knowledge, and recharge for the coming year.
We have collected the presentations and materials from the talks and classroom session this year. They can be found here: 2018 Annual Meeting Presentations & Materials.
In addition to bringing in top-rate instructors, we also invite inspiring and topical keynote speakers. This year we were honored to be joined by WV Senator Shelley Moore Capito; Andrea Levere, President of Prosperity Now; and Joel C. Baxley, Administrator of USDA Rural Development’s Rural Housing Service.
