National Extension Conference (Tag: nexconf)
As you’ve read elsewhere, our national conference will be in Sacramento on March 24-27, 2014. I hope you’ll join us there! But if you or colleagues won’t be in Sacramento, join us virtually by participating in some of the 53 sessions which will be web-streamed. The whole conference is listed in Lanyrd.com/2014/nexconf. Only those sessions to be web-streamed are also listed in Learn.extension.org/events/tag/nexconf with a link for each learning event.

To keep track of your professional development activity in Learn, sign in and click the Attended or Watched box for each event you participate in so that this list can be kept up-to-date for you.
