Make a Difference Across Iowa - 2012
The Make a Difference Across Iowa conference, held the first Saturday of December, offered newly-elected and current Extension Council members the opportunity to network with peers around the state. The one-day conference also offered an introduction to Iowa State University Extension and Outreach guiding principles and philosophy; explanations of county council member roles and responsibilities related to fiscal, programming and personnel management; and information about laws and resources that support Extension Council work. The conference was hosted at twelve sites across Iowa and was attended by nearly 200 Extension Council members. Each session was recorded, and is available for viewing.
