What is the Convening of Western CDES?
Goals of the CDES Annual Convening
Examine personnel and FTE’s devoted to Extension Community Development in each state and the extent to which professionals in the field have received CD training.
Compare programs and learn from one another. Each state will be given approximately 20 minutes to describe its Community Development programs. A question and answer period will be provided so that ideas can be shared. In addition, overviews of regional and national programs that are available will be provided.
Discuss approaches to develop and implement multi-county, multi-state and region-wide programs to address critical issues.
Examine significant gaps in programs where there are priority needs that are not being addressed.
