The summit will focus on the research and assistance available at ISU, as well as from other state programs which address community and retail needs. The goals of this summit are to provide an opportunity to learn about the Iowa Retail Initiative, resources available to Iowa's communities and showcase the great communities across the state. Limited space available; free registration online.


This summit will provide an opportunity to engage local community retail and economic leaders with resources available to help develop thriving communities. Community leaders will also be able to share their retail and economic needs and have the opportunity to showcase their community during the event's closing exhibition.

The event is put on by the Iowa Retail Initiative, a joint effort by ISU Extension and Outreach, the College of Human Sciences, and the College of Design that since August 2013 has provided a single point of contact for rural communities and retailers seeking help.
