Future plans and moratorium news revealed on November 25

November 11, 2009

RADF will be sharing more details concerning its future plans and the Expressions of Interest moratorium at its 2009 RADF Project Showcase event in Edmonton. The morning session is packed with news and information that you can watch live via streaming video on your computer. It's interactive too as you can ask questions on-line during the session. It starts at 9:00 a.m.

We are planning significant organizational changes so we can do more to help rural communities build the capacity and leaders they need to thrive. This is what our organization and rural stakeholders have identified as major needs. The changes are a way to ensure organizations and communities will benefit long-term from RADF's involvement in rural development.
