NAEPSDP Webinar - Building Leadership Competencies in Florida County Extension Directors

11:30 am EST

Developing a qualified workforce and retaining valued employees is essential for organizations to be successful. Many times in Extension, we hire employees without providing the necessary training and development programs to maximize our employees’ potential. Specifically in Florida, intentional development and training does not exist for County Extension Directors (CEDs), whom serve as both the administrative leaders of the county Extension offices and are Extension agents who have a split appointment between their educational programming and administrative duties. This webinar will (1) provide an overview of current research efforts surrounding CED leadership competencies, and (2) describe the current efforts to build leadership development programs for Florida CEDs.

Manure and Soil Erosion, Runoff, and Losses Roundtable

12:00 pm EST

In the Manure and Soil Erosion, Runoff, and Losses roundtable, we hope to discover the influence of manure on soil and runoff. We’ll discuss if certain fields will produce more environmental benefits than others and whether timing of application affects these benefits. Finally, we’ll debate whether we can derive an economic and environmental value for manure beyond its nutrient value, due to improved moisture retention and decreased erosion. We’ll also talk about field experiences and observations related to the value of manure as well as what farmers still need related to soil building with manure. This roundtable is the third in a four part series discussing the current state of our knowledge relative to manure’s impact on soil health.

Presenters include:
  • Nathan Nelson
  • John Gilley
  • Mike Kucera
  • Andy Scholting

4H Futures Program

1:00 pm EST

In this webinar, you will learn about the 4H futures program. Since 2002 the Missouri 4-H Youth Futures: College Within Reach Program, has promoted college as an attainable goal for high school youth who are not typically encouraged to attend college, such as first-generation college students. 4-H Youth Futures is an extensive college orientation program that includes on-going local mentoring, college visits and a college orientation conference on the University of Missouri – Columbia (MU) campus. The goal of the program is to help first-generation, marginalized and vulnerable youth prepare for college, attend and graduate. Some of the Youth Futures sites are funded through CYFAR and the National 4-H Council’s National Mentoring Program grant. This is the first year for state replication.
