What will You be doing 10 years from Now?

A planning process that will shape Extension programs in Florida for the next decade has begun.

This is a joint effort between the University of Florida (UF) and the Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU) that will allow us to have a clear path of action as an educational organization. Our goal is to create a strategic plan that will support Florida's economy, environment, and people. We want it to be relevant today and flexible enough to meet the needs of Florida's communities as they change.
Listening is at the core of Extension's long range planning effort. One way we can hear your ideas is by having you take a survey.

So please spend your next 10 minutes completing this survey. When you are done, take a minute more and share this blog with others who may be interested in contributing ideas about the future of Extension.

What Counts to You in Pinellas County's Budget?

Join the eTownHall tonight and let the Commissioners know.

eTownHall will be held on Wednesday April 6, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. This on-line meeting will enable the public to send questions from their computers via a blog.

The blog opened at 9 a.m. Monday April 4, for citizens to send questions in advance of the meeting and will continue to be open until the end of the event, at 8 p.m. Today.

Tonight next to the blog, there will be a live broadcast of the eTownHall meeting showing the County Commissioners responding to the questions posed by citizens.
