Webinar Series on Modernizing Cooperative Extension

Transforming Organizational Models

Please join us on Wednesday, November 2, 2016 at 3:00 EDT, for the first in a two-part series on modernizing Cooperative Extension. Presenter Neal Vines, Director of Information Technology for the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Virginia Tech, will introduce the first of two similar program support efforts underway at two different universities — Virginia Tech and Penn State.

The series will provide a close-up look at the planning and implementation process of these notable programs, useful for anyone considering comparable projects, including Extension directors, administrators, communication professionals, and program teams.

This first webinar focuses on Extension21 at Virginia Cooperative Extension, a four-year modernization initiative aimed at improving program support infrastructure to better meet the needs of Extension professionals and address the expectations of Extension clientele.
