Journey with Impact: Innovate, Collaborate, Elevate.

For more than 100 years, ISU Extension and Outreach has been a catalyst for change across Iowa and the world. We actively engage individuals and communities in co-creating a better world; help families, farmers, and communities discover research-based innovations; and develop and deliver life-changing education experiences for youth and adults. The 2024 Extension Annual Conference provides us an opportunity to focus on our new strategic vision and direction and begin collaborating on how we can elevate ourselves and our communities through new innovations to address the emerging issues of Iowans.

During our 2024 Annual Conference, we will:

  • Learn more about the strategic vision and direction and identify ways we each can contribute to ISU Extension and Outreach’s efforts to reach all Iowans.
  • Build connections and potential partnerships across our organization in an effort to elevate our programs and outreach efforts.
  • Learn from one another and gain tips and skills that help us to reach Iowans effectively.
  • Celebrate being a part of the ISU Extension and Outreach team.

We will achieve these goals as we:

  • Honor our colleagues during our annual awards ceremony.
  • Participate in workshops presented by colleagues.
  • Engage in collaborative conversations about our priority areas of focus.
  • Hear updates on our organization from ISU Extension and Outreach leadership.
