On behalf of the eXtension staff, I would like to wish everyone a happy holiday season! As you know, 2009 was a year of many accomplishments including the launch of seven new Communities of Practice, the establishment of 14 additional Communities of Practice, continued incorporation of eXtension in various NIFA/USDA grant programs, nearly 12,000 eXtension IDs, steady increases in the number of people being served, the development of important new partnerships with other federal agencies and private sponsors, all topped by an outstanding National eXtension Conference in October. Thank you to all who contribute to eXtension and the many who will do so in the coming year. May we continue to work together to serve our audiences and add value to Cooperative Extension through eXtension.
Dan Cotton, Director
