Agenda and Breakout Session Descriptions

Review the agenda and breakout descriptions so you'll know what sessions you want to register for.


  • Room Sharing: When two or more state employees share lodging accommodations, each employee should normally claim his/her own reimbursement. In instances where one employee pays the total lodging costs, he/she may claim reimbursement for the same by listing the other employee(s) sharing the lodging accommodation. When a state employee is accompanied by an individual not eligible for reimbursement (a spouse or traveling companion), the state employee must have the lodging establishment clearly certify the room rate for a single person and only that amount may be claimed.
  • Travel: Carpooling to the conference is strongly encouraged. Mileage for Extension staff (including county-paid staff) to and from the conference site will be reimbursed at 54 cents per mile from state funds for drivers with at least one other employee traveling with them. Reimbursement also is 54 cents per mile for those traveling alone; however, only 27 cents will be paid from state funds. County or other funds have to be used for the balance.
