Extension Annual Conference Update

After soliciting feedback and discussing the conference options with our Extension Leadership Team and the Annual Conference Committee, we have decided to hold a virtual conference this year with the exact dates TBD (early December). This was not an easy decision because we wanted to provide a chance for everyone to come together at the end of the year, celebrate our successes at pivoting during the COVID-19 situation, participate in professional development, and network as a community. However, with the concerns about ongoing health and well-being, not knowing where we will be policy- and readiness-wise for large gatherings, and to be good stewards of our budget, we decided that a virtual event would be for the best. We will be soliciting additional input on the optimal approach to holding our annual conference. Look to hear from our LOD unit and our annual conference committee in the near future.
