Education Brainstorming Session

All certified MGVs of the RPMGA are invited to take part in a brainstorming session following the September, 2011, monthly business meeting.

Some possible topics to brainstorm:
  • Creating program for RPMGA continuing education
  • Working with 4-H leaders to expand youth horticulture opportunities within the county
  • Offering public programs for community education opportunities
Considerations that will impact programs:
  • The Rock Co. UWEX office staff has experienced significant change due to (pending) retirements
  • The Horticulture Educator position will continue as a 50/50 split until July, 2012
  • As some resources have disappeared (money, staff) others have become available (technology, partnerships)
See you Thursday, September 1.  Business meeting starts at 5:30pm.  Brainstorming begins after the meeting.

[8/30/11 Update]  Remember Lori Gibson from our leadership development training?  I've recruited her to help facilitate our brainstorming session!
