On behalf of the National Extension Association of Family and Consumer Sciences, and the Missouri affiliate, we would like to invite you to become a member of our professional association. As a fellow educator within University Outreach and Extension, we invite you to join with your colleagues who are currently members of NEAFCS and MEAFCS.
Being a member of NEAFCS and MEAFCS has many benefits. Members have the opportunity to support and reward their fellow professionals through the national and state meetings, committee responsibilities, and printed media. Many opportunities exist for sharing knowledge with educators from all over our country and territories. Educational updates are available in our publications, Journal of the National Extension Association of Family and Consumer Sciences and the Communiqué. Educational sessions and exhibitors at our national meeting offer a wealth of current information for NEAFCS members. Our web page at http://www.neafcs.org keeps us updated on organizational issues throughout the year. Our membership web page is http://www.neafcs.org/content.asp?pageID=1238 .
Current members of NEAFCS and MEAFCS have found that
membership supports their professional role in the following ways:
¶ Networking with other educators throughout the country and territories
¶ Leadership development through state and national involvement
¶ Recognition through awards
¶ Presentation and publication of research and/or programs
¶ Travel to national meetings throughout the country
¶ Mentor/Progeny opportunities
¶ Lasting friendships
¶ Publishing in peer reviewed publications
¶ Discussion of common concerns
¶ Continuing education and certification credits
¶ New product information/technology advances
¶ Career advancement
Our association is very active in promoting our profession. We hope you will take a moment to speak to other educators about our association. Are you ready to give us a try?
Membership received by February 1 will figure into our number of voting delegates and awards that Missouri can receive.
