RCRC wishes to thank the participants of the 2022 Annual Meeting, our generous sponsors, and the expert panelists who, together, made this a memorable event. 

This year, over 280 participants, including rural government representatives from RCRC’s 39 member counties, attended the Annual Meeting set over three days at the Marriott Hotel in Napa County.  The event featured experts sharing their knowledge on issues pertinent to rural governance. This included engaging panel discussions with specialists in economic forecasting, broadband deployment, politics, rural tourism, and city-county governance.

During the annual favorite County Basket Drawing and Auction Dinner, generosity was the currency of the evening as participants raised over $67,000 for select charities in the County of the Chair. At the dinner, RCRC also honored Steve Monaghan, Nevada County’s Agency Director/Chief Information Officer, as the recipient of the 2022 RCRC President’s Award for his leadership in information technology on behalf of California’s rural counties. The RCRC President’s Award celebrates individuals who go above and beyond their everyday roles to support and strengthen California’s rural counties. For additional details about the President’s Award, and this year’s honoree, see RCRC’s press release here

Mark your calendars for RCRC’s next Annual Meeting scheduled for September 20-22, 2023 in Monterey County! We hope to see you there.  

“The RCRC Annual Meeting is an important event for rural leaders, as it creates the space for local government representatives from around the state to collaborate and share ideas. We are fortunate to have been joined by speakers at the highest levels of their field, imparting their knowledge and experience for the benefit of our attendees.”
