The DEADLINE for receipt of abstracts is NOVEMBER 9, 2012.
This year's Planning Committee invites you to highlight your own contributions to Cooperative Extension that give insights into issues that are currently affecting our Extension programming, clientele and volunteers. Our concurrent sessions will tackle the theme 'Public Issues Leadership Development: What you CAN do...' These sessions will be for professional development rather than program reports and should offer some education on issues including how to inform others and how to react when they occur. Presentations should highlight productive models of extension advocacy; and how Extension programs successfully address relevant and emerging public issues. They should also illustrate how these models can be readily replicated in other states. We will continue to focus on efforts where Extension fills an essential niche or provides vital leadership for addressing these issues.
Additional information (the schedule of presentation, details on presentation methods, etc.) will be provided after the abstract has been approved.
