2018 Journal of NEAFCS Now Available 

We are pleased to announce that the 2018 Journal of the National Extension Association of Family and Consumer Sciences is now online at http://www.neafcs.org/journal-of-neafcs.

Many thanks to our Co-Editors Sarah Ransom of the University of Tennessee Extension and Dana Wright of West Virginia University Extension, and to the members of the subcommittee, peer reviewers, and to our Vice President of Members Resources, Edda Cotto-Rivera of the University of Georgia Extension, for a quality, peer-reviewed, professional publication that helps preserve our valuable research and resources for the future. 

If you would like to see your work published in a future edition of the JNEAFCS, we encourage and invite you to submit your manuscript to the Journal of NEAFCS. You can find all the guidelines and deadlines on our website: https://www.neafcs.org/journal-submission-guidelines


JCEP Extension Leadership Conference Scholarship Application Now Open - Due December 15

**You must be the President, President-Elect or approved designee of an active Affiliate of NEAFCS in order to apply for this scholarship.**

One of the primary goals of NEAFCS is to develop leadership skills in our members. With that goal in mind, the NEAFCS Board of Directors established the JCEP Extension Leadership Conference Scholarship to encourage attendance by Affiliate Presidents, President-elects or other emerging leaders. 

Recognizing that many of our Affiliates don’t have the resources to send a representative, the NEAFCS Board of Directors is offering scholarships to subsidize the cost of attendance. Please see the JCEP Extension Leadership Conference Scholarship guidelines and application here for consideration.

The deadline to apply is December 15; however scholarships will be offered on a first-come, first-serve basis as there are only 45 scholarships available. Only one (1) scholarship will be awarded per Affiliate.
