Launched in 2018 as a joint adventure between the Hannah Grimes Center for Entrepreneurship and the Keene Sentinel, the Radically Rural Summit attracted 420 attendees in its first year and attracted over 500 rural leaders from 43 states in 2020. This year’s Summit will be held on September 22 & 23. The summit promises rural leaders the opportunity to meet new and interesting people, immerse themselves in engaging and memorable sessions, and enjoy great local food and entertainment — all wrapped up in an amazing small New England town experience.
With the success of the annual summit established, the Hannah Grimes Center has received a federal, three-year grant to fund a full-time position to build the event into a leading national summit and to establish a year-round schedule of activities that support rural community economic development.
This is a three-year position with the potential to extend beyond that if funding permits. It builds on the momentum of a successful three-year track record. Because this job involves coordinating a live event in Keene, the candidate must reside, or be willing to relocate to the Monadnock region. Salary is $65,000 per year plus benefits.
