Day 3



  I am looking forward to March 1 – 3 when we will welcome over 300 Extension professionals from across the state to Pullman for the 2005 All Extension Conference, “Creating a Culture of Change: Extension, Entrepreneurship and Engagement”. It has been nearly two and a half years since our last gathering. During that time, many issues have surfaced that affect our work including: mad cow disease, sudden oak death, digital diagnostic network, carbon sequestration and enhanced precision farming, and “Breeze” online computer technology, documented record levels of obesity and related chronic diseases and the expansion of the 4-H program “Operation: Military Kids” to support families of Reservists and Guard members on active duty. During the same period of time WSU Extension has expanded our program base by engaging the entire university and adding value to our programs by thinking and acting as “entrepreneurs,” matching opportunities with new partners often resulting in new revenue. The planning committee has prepared an exciting three-day program for us to experience professional development on the emerging issues Extension faces today and tomorrow and the skills to be successful. It is also an opportunity to network with colleagues, make new acquaintances, recognize excellence, and connect with partners across the university—all of which can inspire us to strengthen WSU Extension.

On behalf of the planning committee and the co-chairs, Louise Parker and Blair Wolfley, I personally invite you to join us for the All Extension Conference 2005!

Interim Dean and Director
