Decorah resident Luther Snow is a national speaker, facilitator, and consultant who specializes in empowering communities, groups, and networks to take positive action for the common good. Snow's consulting services are being utilized in Victoria, Texas to help communities affected by the devastation of Hurricane Harvey.

Snow is the creator of Asset Mapping, the in-person method for positive group collaboration that has gone "viral" and spread to over 2.5 million users across the US, Canada, and even overseas. According to Snow's website, he has worked with over 25,000 people and hundreds of organizations, giving him the nickname of 'the Good Groups Guru."

Snow will be addressing community leaders at the Texas Rural Leadership Conference this weekend. The conference will feature the development of key leadership skills in building community assets, new ways for engaging community members in sharing visions and assets, and building individual and community visions. Snow's presentation, "Use What We've Got to Get What We Want" will  focus on rural communities in the Gulf Coast area that are rebuilding from the damages from Hurricane Harvey.

According to Snow, the workshops and general sessions of the conference will give participants a new way of looking at community assets, communicating with people, and building relationships to empower residents to become a part of the community's viable future.
