Members
Engagement

This one-hour meeting is intended to serve as a safe space to share ideas, obstacles, and solutions to advance climate change outreach in Extension through casual, facilitated discussion. We will also use this space to share updates and discuss progress on our Extension Climate Change Action Items and work from the Committees (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion; Communications, etc.). These meetings will NOT be recorded and will begin with a reflection on the last Professional Development meeting and member ideas for how to incorporate content into our Extension programming, followed by member sharing of ideas, obstacles, and solutions to advance climate change outreach in Extension.

This meeting is on the third Wednesday of each month at 3:00 pm ET.
