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:
2017 EDEN Annual Meeting
September 26-29 in Moline, Illinois.
Chair of the AM Committee for the Illinois meeting is Carrie McKillip
The 2018 EDEN annual meeting will be hosted by the Texas EDEN Member Institutions.
In 2019, the meeting will be hosted by a Western Region state or states.
Institutions from the Western region interested in hosting the 2019 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.
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.
