Early preparation and education were the messages relayed to dozens of community leaders who were in Bismarck Monday to prepare for the upcoming Census.
Census day is April 1, less than 60 days away. Over the past few decades, the government has been pushing the importance of the Census.
As that day nears, those in charge of making sure everyone is counted are stepping into high gear.
Monday, nearly 100 representatives from across the state came to Bismarck to be trained for the upcoming census count.
