30th Anniversary Celebration of the
Heartland Center for Leadership Development

Snow King Resort, Jackson Hole, Wyoming


Connie copyConnie Reimers-Hild, Associate Executive Director of the Rural Futures Institute at the University of Nebraska, is one of nine featured presenters at the annual institute in October.  Connie’s session is entitled “The Future of Leadership.”  

While many are struggling to keep up with the rapid rate of change, future-focused leaders are growing their communities by blending technology with the human experience.  Leaders who utilize emerging technologies and use an inclusive approach to leadership while creating meaningful experiences, will innovate community engagement in ways not yet imagined.  This presentation will provide practical information on megatrends designed to help rural people and places change the conversation from one focused on challenges to a dialogue filled with endless opportunities.
