Streaming "LIVE" Regional EDEN Food Protection Conference

Where: Multiple sites around the nation
HOST SITE: University of Minnesota

How: Adobe Connect 

Pre-conference Training: Tentatively June 15, 2009

General Information: The conference host decided to offer the option to register as a satellite site because we are aware of the tight travel budgets faced by Extension, State, Local, and industry professionals. 

Our over-arching goal for the satellite sites is to provide a meaningful way for food safety professionals to come together and learn without having to travel. Other goals are:

  • To create a team of Extension, State, Local, and Industry professionals
  • To participate in conference discussions via chat or email
  • To work through conference exercises

If a member of the Extension Center for Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences (EFANS), hosts a satellite site (with a group of 3 or more) the registration fee will be covered by EFANS Please use the EFS Account # to pay for your registration fee. 

All sites MUST have a point person. The point person will be the point of contact for the conference leadership and will be in charge of organizing the site meeting, learning how to use Connect, facilitating conference activities, and reporting back to conference leadership. 

Adobe Connect Instructions: A URL will be e-mailed out to all point persons. The URL will be your ticket to enter the conference site. Each site will need to sign-in as a guest using the name of your specific site (i.e. Moorhead Regional Extension Office, Idaho State Extension). Once you sign-in and enter room you will see the conference space before you. Technical help will be available to you in the meeting room. 

The audio bridge is available to sites for listening to presenters if your room lacks speakers to hear the presentation. Please keep the audio bridge number on hand.

The June 15th training is REQUIRED! This will not only be a time for training but also for you to ask questions on Connect, the conference, and other related topics.
