The evening's hallmark was the in-depth presentation by Dr. Glenda Humiston, the California Director for the US Department of Agriculture. She shared how the USDA worked with rural communities, provided insights into programs Lake County businesses could take advantage of, and gave her view on what needed to happen to build a sustainable local economy.
The resources Humiston mentioned are:
- USDA Report - Access to Capital August 2012
- USDA Report - Jobs, Economic Development, and Sustainable Communities February 2010
