News

The call for proposals for CDS has been extended to Feb. 15.

Congratulations to Connie Mefford, who was elected to represent the North-Central region for two years on the board of the National Association of Community Development Extension Professionals (NACDEP).  We know you will represent Missouri and all your states well!

Congratulations to Kara Lubischer and Kathy Macomber for being selected to participate in the National Extension Leadership Development (NELD) program.  We're so pleased to have these two leaders representing Missouri.

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.
