February 26 Message
Good Afternoon: I hope all of you have had a good week. It looks like March will come in like a lamb next week. A few things to share today:
Hold the date: A combined Support Staff Development day and 4H Management Day will be held Thursday, April 22 at the Community Center in Redwood Falls. Invited to the Staff Development Day are Support Staff in the Worthington, Marshall and Hutchinson Regional Offices, County Support Staff in the Marshall and Worthington regions and 4H Program Coordinators in 4H Districts 11 and 12. We are still in the process of finalizing the agenda. However, I anticipate that the day will include tools to make our work more effective and efficient, transitional issues related to the 4H realignment and technology training with Karen Mathys. It will be a good day. Please be sure that your entire office staff is aware of this scheduled training. Look for more specific agenda details and registration info in mid to late March.
New Extension Wordmark: The Extension Wordmark is changing! This change is to better align the Extension with the public image communicated with the University of Minnesota. The new Extension wordmark will be available to download from the MyU website sometime next week. There will also be Powerpoint templates available for download and a Fast Guide to use for reference when using the new wordmark.
The forms to order letterhead and envelopes will also be put on the website next week. Please note that you should use all letterhead and envelopes you have on hand with the old wordmark before ordering any with the new wordmark.
Have a great weekend,
