This Year’s PILD Conference a Great Success

Theresa MayhewOver 310 Extension professionals gathered at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City April 12-15 to learn how to tell Extension’s story more effectively to elected officials and other stakeholders at all levels of government – local, state and federal. The conference theme -- “Imaging Extension – Eyes on the Future” -- permeated the entire event starting with the opening keynote about the power of storytelling to the fast-paced capnote about using technology to advance Extension’s future. Plenary and concurrent sessions reinforced these messages while addressing such issues as advocacy, public policy, and partnership building. NEAFCS members heard from a number of NIFA Division of Family and Consumer Sciences program leaders on their latest program initiatives and were able to interact with their fellow colleagues from across the county. Throw in some beautiful spring weather, moonlight national monuments, fragrant cherry blossoms, exciting Hill visits and learning how to navigate the Metro system and you had the makings of an exhilarating three and a half days. You’ll be hearing more about PILD from the 20 first timer scholarship recipients in future e-Newsletters. Stay tuned!

-Theresa Mayhew (NY), Vice President for Public Affairs
