As confidence in the federal administration erodes and community values are pitted against nationalistic fears, our communities will have to find strength from within. The future of local and regional institutions will rely on a new generation of community leaders and civil servants. By recognizing your own role in guiding your community into the future, you can be part of building a legacy of resilience. Join Austin Bell as they discuss their personal experiences and the path forward for our region.
