Become a Member Institution (Extension Program)

Institutions become EDEN members when the Director or Administrator of the Extension Service submits an EDEN Cooperative Agreement and designates a point of contact. Most EDEN membership has developed when a specialist or county educator wants to participate and approaches the director or administrator, asking them to submit the agreement.

The "Document for Directors/Administrators" can be read on-line or downloaded for hardcopy presentation. The EDEN Cooperative Agreement is provided in MSWord format for download, signature and mailing.

This two-page document gives a brief explanation of EDEN, which the director or administrator may wish to review when considering whether to sign the cooperative agreement making the decision to join EDEN.

The agreement is to be submitted with a letter from the director or administrator of the Extension Service program that introduces the institution's delegate(s) to EDEN.
