Would you please forward the information to your listservs.   Thank you for your help.  Pam

Please distribute - Support for attendance at the SARE meeting for community development extension educators in the Northeast Region.

SARE is celebrating its 25th anniversary conference in Kansas City March 25-27, 2008.

In order to increase the collaboration between sustainable agriculture and community development, the Northeast Regional Center for Rural Development is pleased to award five travel scholarships of $750 each to community development educators in the region to help them form new partnerships.  We are grateful to Farm Foundation for making this possible.  There will be an obligation of those supported

1. to participate in a conference call prior to the meeting to discuss strategies to maximize the benefit of participation,
2. to meet as a group briefly during the conference,
3. to write a brief report of the actions they plan as a result of what they learned and who they met at the meetings which will be shared within the region, and
4. to participate in a final phone conference to discuss progress on those actions and suggestions for further regional activities to build stronger partnerships.

Applications should include:

1. Name
2. Current position
3. Past experience with SARE or other sustainable agriculture groups
4. Potential of more fully integrating community development with sustainable agriculture in their Extension work.
5. A letter supporting their attendance and program integration from their state program leader.

Please send the applications to my e-mail address [log in to unmask] with a copy to [log in to unmask] (Pam Hileman/Pam Hearn).

We will receive applications through February 22 so that those chosen will be able to register by March 1 to pay the reduced conference fee.  NOTE: The $250 registration fee is not covered by the $750 travel scholarship.
