Topeka, Kan. – Registration is open for this year’s Kansas Rural Opportunities Conference in Dodge City. The Kansas Department of Commerce hosts this conference annually to provide useful information about rural Kansas living, as well as to engage in a dialogue with rural Kansans to determine how the Department can bolster its efforts to improve the well-being of rural communities in the state. The Conference will take place at the Boot Hill Casino & Conference Center in Dodge City on April 2-3. New Commerce Secretary David Toland will be kicking off the conference and Lt. Governor Lynn Rogers will discuss the Office of Rural Prosperity. Lt.
