The 2015 meeting is being hosted jointly by Colorado State University’s College of Agriculture and Cooperative Extension and planners have put together a great program. In addition, to conducting the business of our separate associations, we will use our time in Breckenridge to further our progress on the Western Perspective and Western Agenda—you will receive a final draft of the Western Perspective white paper prior to the meeting. During the meeting, we will be joined by our partners at kglobal, and by our facilitation team lead by Dr. Steve McMullin, who will help us to develop the “Western Agenda” to demonstrate the value of the Western U.S. and contributions of Western Land-Grant Universities to decision makers and stakeholders. We will also take time to identify gaps in research, extension, and teaching and make action plans to address them.

Because this meeting will focus on communication strategies for delivering the Western Agenda, Deans and Directors are encouraged to consider bringing their college/unit’s communications specialist(s).

Registration for the 2015 WRJSM closes on June 15, 2015 so don’t delay!
