Ask an Expert Transition Webinar Meetups

eXtension Web Meetup to Begin Orienting Extension Professionals on Changes to Ask an Expert

On November 18, 2016, the eXtension Foundation Board of Directors accepted, with final revisions, the recommendations for redesigning the delivery of Ask an Expert that emerged from a summer’s study project led by a team of eXtension staff and participated in by interested Extension professionals nationwide. Next week, two web meetups will be held to begin the transition process for 2017 by introducing attendees to the changes and what they mean for you and your audience(s).

Please plan to join one or both of these two meetups. Learn how to make changes for profiles of experts working Ask an Expert and also to update profiles of Ask an Expert Groups. Share your tips and training resources to prepare you and your Ask an Expert group for managing a direct, incoming flow of questions without a national Question Wrangler group.
