How can we build an Appalachian economy that creates
local small businesses that make smart use of
materials close at hand? Come to a conference in the
mountains of Virginia to explore this question with
Appalachian Community Economics (ACE). You’re invited
to come share your skills and talents and learn from
others at the ACE conference in Abingdon, VA, Sept.
Your skills and ideas need to be shared! If you have a
business or want to start your own, please come to the
ACE conference. Maybe you can make money on a hobby
or learn or teach about a grant or service. Share
information about startup funds or business planning.
This weekend could help you bring your farm, forest or
garden products into a new market.
Come and make new connections. There will be tables
for organizations located in a resource section of the
conference space, and a demonstration area to show
skills and economies that are already working in
Appalachian communities.We encourage your participation.
