FRS Events

If you're not at the table, you're on the menu.

Interested in sponsoring an event?


FRS works to encourage dialogue about rural issues. We do this by hosting educational events on issues pertaining to rural America, broadband and its applications—smart agriculture, distance education, telemedicine—you name it. 

But hosting events (yes, even educational ones) requires resources. FRS also hosts fundraisers at all major NTCA conferences. A portion of each ticket sold to an FRS fundraiser, and all sponsorships, comes back to us and help us keep the rural voice at the table.

Retro Bash at The Duce Presented by CoBank

Monday, February 17, 2020
The Duce

6:00 P.M.—10:00 P.M.

Ticket price - $175

Don’t be square, bust out your bell bottoms and join FRS for a retro-themed party at The Duce, where vintage meets present day.

Travel back in time with throwback music, a vintage photo booth and far out fun and games. Enjoy a delicious, casual dinner with milkshakes and drinks. Retro-themed costumes or apparel from the ‘60s and ‘70s are totally encouraged, but not required! 

The Duce is just a half mile from the RTIME hotel location, but looped transportation to and from the venue will be provided. It’ll be a groovy time!

Add an event ticket to your RTIME registration for $175, or become an event sponsor.

All event proceeds support the FRS mission and programming, including community grants, scholarships and educational materials.

Thank You to Our Sponsors
