Note from David Civittolo

As we move into the fall season, my team and I are preparing for a couple of important events that will bring us together in the coming weeks. I hope you’re planning to join me on Oct. 24 at 2 p.m. for a video update with Dean Kress. As with past videos, you can expect this one to include updates on programming, the budget, career advancement information, and more. Dean Kress will address our entire Extension staff during this time, so she will lead part of the video message too. 

The next time we will likely meet face-to face is during regional conversations – which will happen across the state the week of Nov. 13. If you haven’t already registered to be a part of one of the sessions, please do that now here. We understand that seating is limited at some locations, but we will do our best to accommodate anyone wishing to participate. Contact ShaLise Simmons ( with any questions about registering. 

As we continue our individual roles in Extension’s work, I want you to know that the contributions you’ve made in the past, the effort you put forth today, and the commitment you make to be here in the future are not lost on me. Know that our organization needs you to help fulfill the land-grant mission that unites us.


Kindly, David
