Annual Conference Call for Proposals – due Sept. 15

Mark your calendars for our Extension Annual Conference, coming this December 7-9. Connect online with colleagues to celebrate our work and celebrate each other, while we also talk about trust and leadership as we look ahead. The theme for this year is Reflect. Reconnect. Refocus. In 2020, we adapted to change in all aspects of our lives, due to many circumstances beyond our control. We went above and beyond to fulfill our mission and provide exceptional virtual programming, communication, and training to Ohioans throughout the state.

Fast forward to 2021. We are reflecting on the past year and moving forward together to an even better future! We are reconnecting with colleagues as we come back to our offices and with clientele as we meet again more often in person. We are refocusing on our strategic efforts and organizational values as we adjust to a new “now,” continually improving our partnerships, programs, products, processes, and support for our people!

All proposals are due on Wednesday, Sept. 15 by 11:59pm. If you have any questions about the RFP process, email ShaLise Simmons ( or Debby Lewis ( with the LOD team.
