White House Rural Council in Canonsburg (June 4)

Event: White House Rural Council's Made in Rural America Regional Forum
Date: June 4, 2014 
Location: Hilton Garden Inn in the Southpointe Business Park, Canonsburg, PA 

The White House Rural Council’s Made in Rural America export and investment initiative is holding a regional forum on expanding international market opportunities. This forum will help rural firms understand ways to grow their business by finding new customers overseas or selling more to their existing international customers.  

Hosted by the Appalachian Regional Commission, the full-day forum will take place on June 4 at the Hilton Garden Inn in the Southpointe Business Park in Canonsburg, PA.
The regional forum in Canonsburg is the first of five across the country that will highlight federal, state, and local resources to help rural businesses and community leaders take advantage of export opportunities and access new customers and markets abroad.

The forum will highlight the role exports can play in helping rural businesses access new opportunity and helping rural communities add jobs and ensure long-term sustainable growth. Attendees will hear from experienced local exporters and from local, state, and federal organizations about resources and opportunities to help rural companies meet their export objectives. U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, chair of the White House Rural Council, is invited to speak, along with Doug McKalip, Senior Policy Advisor for Rural Affairs for the White House Domestic Policy Council and ARC Federal Co-Chair Earl Gohl.
The event is free and will include lunch, but registration is required. Learn more here. If you have any questions, please contact ARC at
