Public Issues Leadership Conference (PILD) Call for Presentations


The 2019 Public Issues Leadership Development (PILD) Conference will be April 14-17, 2019 at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City in Arlington, VA. This conference is sponsored by the Joint Council of Extension Professionals (JCEP). The PILD Planning Committee is looking for submissions for concurrent sessions AND poster sessions! See the Request for Proposals (RFP) at https://www.jcep.org/pild/pild-rfp for guidance. 

For increased success in the review process, consider addressing the conference theme in your application. This year's theme is Enhancing Leadership Capacity for Emerging Issues. Projects or programs could reflect the future of urban-rural interdependence and programming, national preparedness and planning for disaster resilience and recovery, the role of Extension in communicating and managing the impact of big data, public issues education/the state of civility and/or developing a futuristic volunteer base.

The deadline for submissions is November 14 and we'd love to see at least 18 submissions from NEAFCS members for the 2019 conference!
