Michigan Rural Network & Rural Partners of Michigan Combine Efforts

Earlier this month, the Board of Rural Partners of Michigan (RPM) voted to consolidate the work of the organization with the Michigan Rural Network (MRN).  Both RPM and MRN are passionate about rural communities in Michigan and both have been operating under very similar mission statements.

The consolidation will take place gradually during the next several months and a transition team has been formed to work through details related to time lines and logistics.  We will continue to keep you informed as we move through this process and we hope you share our excitement for the future!

In the meantime, do you have thoughts, hopes, dreams, or comments on this consolidation?  Let us know; we’d love to hear from you and would be happy to use your thoughts to inform the consolidation process!
