LIBERTY – The public is invited to attend the 100th Annual Meeting of Cornell Cooperative Extension Sullivan County (CCE) on Thursday, December 11, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. in the Gerald J. Skoda Extension Education Center on 64 Ferndale-Loomis Road in Liberty.
At the annual meeting, the CCE board and staff will honor outstanding volunteers and youth for their accomplishments and dedication to the mission and to the past year’s Centennial Campaign. Voting for board of directors and program advisory committee vacancies and expired terms is also on the agenda. A list of the candidates can be found on the CCE website at www.sullivancce.org.
The keynote speaker is Scott J. Peters, a professor in the Department of Development Sociology at Cornell University, professor in the Cultural Foundations of Education Department at Syracuse University, and Faculty Co-Director of Imagining America: Artists and Scholars in Public Life. Dr. Peters will discuss the “Extension Reconsidered” initiative, which is the topic of his new book.
Imagining America (IA) has launched a new initiative called “Extension Reconsidered” to examine dominant views of what Cooperative Extension is and what it’s for, and to envision what it could and should be in the 21st Century. This initiative marks the centennial of the 1914 Smith-Lever Act, the federal legislation that institutionalized the land-grant system and established the national Cooperative Extension System.
Dr. Peters has been leading this national research initiative about the future of the land-grant system’s extension and public engagement work as a collaborative effort among IA, the Kettering Foundation, Community-Campus Partnerships for Health, and the Engagement Scholarship Consortium.
Light refreshments will be provided. There is no charge to attend.
