Extension Board Annual Training

New Extension Board members, are you ready for your role?

At the Extension Board Annual Training, we are committed to sharing with new board members some of the knowledge, skills, and resources they will need to excel in their roles. We recognize the pivotal role that board members play in shaping the future of Nebraska Extension, and we are here to support your journey. This interactive virtual training will be hosted via Zoom and is intended for all new Extension Board Members and current members who have not already participated in an online training. It is recommended that participants utilize a computer for the training as the use of your camera, microphone, and keyboard will enhance your training experience.

Register for you session below. We ask that participants watch four short videos before the live Zoom training. Videos can be found at the bottom of the training website. Contact Karly Black, Engagement Zone Coordinator, with questions at karly.black@unl.edu.
