ALA Washington Office to present webinar for rural libraries on USDA funding opportunities

The ALA Washington Office will host a webinar to assist rural libraries with pursuing funding opportunities from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) at 2 p.m. EST October 29. USDA defines rural as 20,000 residents.

Cheryl Cook, the Rural Development Deputy Under Secretary of Agriculture;  Carla Anderson, the Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of e-Copernicus, a Washington consulting firm expert in broadband; and Kevin Cherry, Senior Program Officer for the Institute of Museum and Library Service’s Office of Library Service, will participate.  

The presenters will discuss the three USDA programs with funds available for rural libraries — the Distance Learning and Telemedicine program, the Communities Facility program and the Community Connect program.

    Hello-when I click on the link to register for the USDA webinar on Friday 10/29 I do not
    get connected so am unable to register. Can you fix this problem for me?
    Thank you, Michael Roche

  2. The link does not let me register for the webinar.

  3. Guess I left it too late. “Session is full, contact organizer” is the message I get after the Citrix GoToMeeting loads.

  4. I registered for the webinar, received a confirmation, and when I try to go to the webinar, it tells me the session is full. What’s the deal?

    I also registered, received a confirmation, and get the notice that the session is full. Did you register too many people? Will we be able to view an archive?

    The conference has been reset and you should be able to enter the session, now.

    Mary — re-try now; I had the same problem, but just now connected.
