This spring I was able to expand my network, by attending Extension Center-specific conferences and meetings: Youth Development, Family Development, and Community Vitality. These conferences were a great way to hear about future directions of various groups, what current research is going on, and chat with staff, not just educators, about how I can help them more. I can't wait for next year and meeting more staff!
On top of that I was awarded a 6 week leave to work on a survey of Extension staff on their information needs and professional development interests. I am very excited to work with some talented folks in Extension to design the survey and make it happen this fall!
