Energizing the West: July 6-9, 2008

The University of Alaska Fairbanks School of Natural Resources and Agricultural Sciences, the Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station, and the Alaska Cooperative Extension Service are hosting the 2008 Western Region Joint Summer Meeting in Fairbanks, Alaska, July 6-9, 2008.

The Western Regional Joint Summer Meeting brings together deans, directors, academic heads, program chairs, CARET representatives, and others associated with land grant mission leadership in Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Wyoming and the insular islands of the American Pacific. "Energizing the West" is this year's conference theme. The conference will offer networking opportunities and discussions of policy relevant to issues important to the land grant universities as they diversify their participation in instruction, research, and outreach to a rapidly changing population profile in the west.

This conference is being held jointly with the Western Region Mid-Managers Conference, "Energizing Extension in the West". The conference is designed to provide professional development and networking opportunities for Cooperative Extension professionals with administrative responsibilities.

This would be an interesting conference to attend. I've always thought that building for living with water conservation (farm, work, home) would also conserve energy. For example, diverting grey and black waters, point of use water heating, dry sanitation, clustered and subterranean housing, solar siting, etc are traditional/modern to NM and to AK.

Welcome, Bepuwave, Cama'i to the blogosphere.
