Introduction

This is Mike Reichenbach's periodic report highlighting progress toward personal, and organizational goals. Mike is a Regional Extension Educator in Natural Resources and the Environment with the University of Minnesota Extension and an interim Associate Director of the Northeast Minnesota Sustainable Development Partnership.

The title Disclosures and Prognostications reminds me of a postion I held with the Illinois Department of Conservation. Weekly, at the Monday Forestry Division staff meeting, we submitted a written and oral report summarizing the past week and highlighting the activities of the comming week. The word prognostication, a fortelling or prediction of the future, was used by one colleague to describe his report on the comming week. I have combined the word disclosure to indicate the summarization of progress with the word prognostication to indicate my goals for the future.
