Beginning in February 2020, CIRD resource team members will lead a series of three webinars to help participants navigate the design process. Topics will focus on fundraising and predevelopment activities, design development and project management, and how to complete an action plan. Each webinar will feature subject matter experts and case studies showcasing success in rural design.

To maximize impact, the Citizens' Institute on Rural Design Webinar Series will be open to the public. The Webinar Series will also be recorded and shared with CIRD constituents.
