Extension Professionals Meetings
The EPC periodically coordinates professional development and networking meetings. In addition, the EPC coordinates an annual meeting of all Extension Professionals. This is generally a one- or two-day event with workshops and breakout sessions on topics that are relevant to our work and of interest to the Professionals we represent.
