Extension Update – July 26, 2018   arrow

On behalf of State Office:

Mark your calendars:

Face-to-face New Staff Orientation for Extension employees will be held on campus September 10-12 (Sept. 10-13 for those with 4-H responsibilities and for new County Directors).

A reminder that 2018 Forum dates are October 22-25. The committee will meet soon to begin planning.

CPRS – Jan Carroll

As of July 16, the following days and contacts have been reported.  This is a large improvement over mid-year checks previously.  Thanks to all who are reporting by the 10th of each month.  On the screen showing Reporting Frequency, however, it appears we are missing all data from some, outputs from many, indicators from most, and narratives from almost all.  I hope when everyone is back in the office after summer vacation and fairs that we will see an uptick in expected reporting.  Thank you in advance!
