Welcome to our new colleagues and MACEDEP members!  We're pleased to have two new regional community development specialists in NE Missouri, John Gulick,in Pike County, and Chris Kempke in Scotland County.

Check out our brochure, created by Richard Proffer and students from Southeast Missouri State University.  

We are pleased that Connie Mefford was elected to represent the North-Central region on the board of the National Association of Community Development Extension Professionals (NACDEP). 

The association bylaws were revised extensively in 2014.  Notable changes include the addition of a Life Membership, providing new hires with a free first year's membership (UMEA provides a similar benefit), and adding a dissolution of assets clause.  

Award categories were also revised in 2014 to be compatible with national (NACDEP) awards.  There are now five award categories:  Distinguished Career; Educational Technology; Excellence in Teamwork; Cross-Program Award; and Excellence in Community and Resource Development Program Award.  Note that in some cases an individual and/or team award is possible.
