Leadership teams from the eight Pioneer eXtension Communities of Practice are meeting this week in Louisville KY. The primary focus of the meeting is to train these teams in virtual team building…the art of building and working as teams in a virtual environment. The teams are also seeing demonstrations on how to work together in the eXtension collaborative “wiki” space, hearing some “lessons learned” from some early work as a Community of Practice, learing marketing and financial development strategies, and gaining new insight into the technology resources eXtension offers to Communities of Practice.

The teams represented include: Financial Security for All, Extension Disaster Education Network (EDEN), Imported Fireants, Building Local Economies of the Future, Consumer Horticulture, HorseQuest, Just In Time Parenting, and Wildlife Damage Management.
