Track Sessions Overview

The Brushy Fork Annual Institute provides a place for community leaders from central Appalachia to come together to explore issues facing the region and to develop solutions they can implement in their organizations and communities. The Institute features informative plenary sessions, hands-on workshop tracks and focused networking opportunities.
