Northeast Regional Leadership Committee

Join the Northeast Regional Leadership Committee!

Serving Cheyenne, Elbert, Kit Carson, Lincoln, Logan, Morgan, Phillips, Sedgwick, Washington, and Yuma counties

Through the Rural Action Network Community Resource Center (CRC) convenes a powerful network of nonprofits, community leaders, funders, and changemakers to tackle persistent issues, develop and cultivate rural leadership, align and increase the giving of philanthropy with the needs of rural nonprofits to support thriving and just communities across rural Colorado.

In 2022 the Northeast Regional Leadership Committee (RLC) will work to develop shared agreement on a pressing cross-sector issue the RLC can work on and bring regional partners to the table to lead transformational change. The Northeast Regional Leadership Committee (RLC) will design a plan for your region and is convened and directly supported by 2-3 CRC staff members. The RLC typically meets monthly for a virtual hour-long meeting. We work in a highly collaborative manner with RLC members bringing their lived experience, connections, and local networks to these efforts. We are building a wide-ranging committee of leaders from across the region with expertise in their local communities from direct service providers, to community volunteers, to representatives of local governments  – all have a seat at the table.

Our Goals

  • Grantmakers are increasingly engaged with rural Colorado community leaders to ensure a better understanding of regional challenges and collaborative opportunities.
