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

Dues for Life Memberships are payable on a one-time basis and are set at an amount equal to four times the current annual rate of Active Members dues. Life Members have all the rights and privileges of Active Members. If a Life Member returns to active employment status, he/she will be required to pay dues as an Active Member until retirement status is resumed. Life Member status would be reinstated without additional payment when Extension employment returns to retirement status.
