The 2014 Community Capitals Framework Institute, sponsored by the Heartland Center for Leadership Development, the National Drought Mitigation Center at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and South Dakota State University, will focus on employment of the Community Capitals Framework on issues related to water management, drought planning, public health in rural communities, ecotourism and rural and community development.

Who should attend? We invite those using the CCF in their practice, research and evaluation work as well as those who want to know more about the framework and how they might use it. Those who attend will have an opportunity to share their work and experiences with others and to develop strategies for applying the CCF to current research, practice and evaluation efforts. Please send abstracts to Kurt Mantonya at the Heartland Center for Leadership. Submission of abstracts is not a requirement of attendance.

The Institute will start Wednesday, November 5, at 1:00 p.m. and end at 12:00 noon on Friday, November 7. Please also share the invitation to participate with others who have an interest in community and organizational vitality.
