Big Skies/Bold Partnerships
Moving Mountains Together
CDS/NACDEP Joint Conference
June 11-14, 2017
Big Sky, Montana
Fulfill your New Year's Resolution!
According to a recent study, 63% of all resolutions set by national conference attendees are abandoned by January 15. Even more alarming - 89% appear to be so mesmerized (or should I say, traumatized??) by completing their annual reporting that they never set any. (1)
Your colleagues in the Community Development Society (CDS) and National Association of Community Development Extension Professional (NACDEP)offer you hope and help.
In 2017, If you want learn things such as...
... understanding local economies
... diverse audience engagement strategies
... international program ideas
... local government issues
Then reset (or set) your resolution to register for the CDS/NACDEP"Big Skies: Bold Partnerships-Moving Mountains Together" Conference!
(1) These statistics and facts are completely made up in the spirit of fun.
