Resources to Tell Your Story: How to Engage Partners and Access Funding 

Panel discussion with moderator Cortney Bloomer, Travel Nevada; Shari Davis, Governor’s Office of Economic Development; Anthony Manfredi, Nevada Arts Council; Miles Gurtler, Bureau of Land Management; Fred Steinmann, UNR’s University Center for Economic Development 

Moderated by Travel Nevada’s Destination Development Manager, this panel discussion features an expert panel of partners who not only made up the first 3D Project Selection Committee, but who also have a deep love for rural Nevada. Representing diverse State and Federal agencies, the collective knowledge of the speakers is a deep well for anyone interested in looking at community and economic development through a tourism lens. Not only will participants learn about a wide network of resources available to rural Nevada communities, they will also get to hear first-hand about effective strategies, programs, and partnerships that might spark an idea for implementation in their own communities.
