EDEN Annual Meetings
EDEN hosts an annual meeting every year. The meeting is hosted by a member institution and rotates yearly by region. The delegates meet annually, usually in the fall. EDEN delegates and Extension professionals attend and give presentations or posters that add to the professional development and educational programming of the meeting.
Upcoming Annual Meetings:
2016 EDEN Annual Meeting
October 11-14 at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York.
Chair of the AM Committee for this meeting is Keith Tidball.
2017 EDEN Annual Meeting
The week of September 25 in Rock Island, Illinois.
Chair of the AM Committee for this meeting is Rick Atterberry.
The 2018 EDEN annual meeting should be hosted by the Southern region.
There is a lot of experience available to assist with the job of hosting an annual meeting. The annual meeting committee will assist a host site in coordinating an annual meeting. The EDEN Chair-elect will have the responsibility of putting the program together with the help of the annual meeting committee. You’ll have lots of help.
Institutions from the Southern interested in hosting the 2018 meeting are asked to send a one-page proposal to the EDEN chair. States can collaborate, as was done by "the Carolinas" in 2002. The proposal should explain the member institution’s hosting capabilities as outlined in the EDEN Annual Meeting Responsibilities (password protected) document on the EDEN Intranet.
If we have multiple interests, there will be a selection process which frequently involves pitching your location at the EDEN Annual Meeting two years in advance of the proposed meeting.
