Each year, Rural Schools Collaborative and the National Rural Education Association work together to coordinate the National Forum to Advance Rural Education (NFARE). We are happy to announce that the call for presenters for 2023 is now OPEN!

Hundreds of attendees from across the United States will have the opportunity to discover and experience the latest rural innovations, best practices, research, and more. Join us in person in Chattanooga, TN or virtually on November 16-17, 2023 and consider attending the NEW pre-conference on November 15.

“As always, I love coming to this conference! I repeatedly tell people it feels like my conference home.”


In-Person Sessions

Presenters will present in-person in Chattanooga, TN on November 16 or 17. In-person sessions will not be live streamed and will not be required to submit a recorded presentation.

Virtual Sessions

Presenters will submit a pre-recorded version of their presentation for on-demand viewing. There will be no live component for virtual sessions.

Just as attendees have two ways to participate, presenters will have the option to present in-person or virtually. In-person presenters will follow the typical event model of presenting onsite in Chattanooga during a designated time. Virtual presenters will be required to pre-record their sessions and submit them prior to the event.

“This is the most down to earth, unassuming and frankly, fun group of conference goers I have experienced.”


By presenting at the 2023 National Forum to Advance Rural Education, presenters will have the opportunity to share their research, strategies, and ideas, and positively impact hundreds of rural education leaders and practitioners from across the country.
