Please see this note from Vice President for Extension and Outreach, Dr. John Lawrence:

Register for Annual Conference: Honor Our Past, Celebrate Our Present, Embrace Our Future

Iowa State University Extension and Outreach has a legacy of serving Iowans since 1903. During our 2023 Annual Conference, we will honor the many ways our organization and our people have impacted our state as we acknowledge our 120th anniversary. We also will celebrate our ongoing efforts to meet the needs of all Iowans today and embrace our continuing commitment to serve Iowans in the future. I encourage you to join me for our 2023 ISU Extension and Outreach Annual Conference, March 6-7 in Ames.

  • On Monday, March 6, 4:00-6:30 p.m., we will celebrate and honor our extension colleagues during an awards ceremony at the Gateway Hotel and Conference Center.
  • On Tuesday, March 7, we will gather at the Iowa State Center, using both the Scheman Building and Stephens Auditorium for our conference. We will begin the day by celebrating accomplishments and impacts of ISU Extension and Outreach throughout our history. The conference also will include educational workshops presented by our colleagues from across the system. During our closing session we will meet the new Vice President for Extension and Outreach, who will help lead this outstanding program into the future.

We will come together to achieve these goals:

  • Share our history. Learn more about our organization and connect lessons learned from the past to efforts to meet Iowans’ needs moving forward through our programs, initiatives, staff, volunteers, and partnerships.
  • Build connections. Renew old acquaintances and meet new staff. Build relationships with colleagues through shared learning and meaningful discussions.
  • Learn from one another. Gain ideas for new ways to work, collaborate, and reach Iowans effectively.
  • Celebrate. There is much to be proud of across the ISU Extension and Outreach team.

Registration is open. Visit the Annual Conference website for more information, including the agenda and registration details. To meet the needs of our host venues, early registration closes February 17; late registration closes February 24. Due to catering needs, we will not accept onsite registration. Please register now and plan to attend this year’s event. I look forward to seeing you.
