The Marriott Rivercenter, host hotel for the 2018 NEAFCS Annual Session, has notified us that we have sold out our group block on the following two nights only - Saturday, September 22 and Friday, September 28.  If you try and make a reservation that includes either or both of these nights, it will tell you that rooms are not available; however THEY DO have rooms available on these nights, it will just be at a higher rate. The other rooms nights are still available at our group rate. You may be required to make two reservations if that is the case.  If you have this issue, please notify the National Office and we will see if we can offer assistance.


NEAFCS Impact 2018 Reports Available

Click here to view this year's impact statements. NEAFCS IMPACT 2018 will be used by Extension employees and volunteers at the Public Issues Leadership Development Conference. These education pieces will be shared in state delegation visits to their elected officials on Capitol Hill. Additionally, these impact statements are shared with USDA NIFA Administration and FCS Program Leaders and Joint Council of Extension Professionals leaders and representatives.

This year, members from 38 affiliates provided 268 on-line data submissions. Compared with last year, one less affiliate submitted an impact; however, we saw 16 additional data submissions. NEAFCS IMPACT 2018 in nine subject areas can be used in many ways, such as during Living Well Month activities and  educational visits with state and local elected officials and stakeholders throughout the year. Thanks to all the contributors, content editors, Public Affairs subcommittee members, affiliate leadership and NEAFCS Board members who promoted and supported this project.
