Our role is rural development. Our primary interests include, but are not limited to, the environment, recreation, education, tourism, and energy conservation. Local and state economic, industrial, and development commissions as well as planning district commissions are the primary leaders of economic development within our area. We strive to enhance rather than compete with their activities.

Where possible, we try to stimulate the level of activity by assisting with the small business growth and development of niche industries. We do not limit ourselves as a funding or grant-seeking service. We help to develop local leadership and coordinate community and regional activities. Local people participating in the planning, decision-making, and implementation process accomplish this.

Viability of rural communities is important, and we assist our area in trying to overcome its vulnerability to financial constraints, declining political strength and leadership fragmentation. The result is a favorable climate for expanding industry, economic growth and community services.
