For a list of additional professional development opportunities, see the professional development chart.

Signature Programs
Program teams are asked to identify signature programs. A signature program is a comprehensive, team-based program that addresses a priority issue throughout the state and evaluates the program's impact on the learning, application, or effect with clientele. Criteria for signature programs include:

  • Involves collaborative effort between specialists and agents where agents have active delivery role (beyond hosting event)
  • Addresses priority issues
  • Offered in multiple locations in the state or targeted areas as appropriate (i.e., canola production areas)
  • Includes evaluation plan/tool at level 2-3-4 and provides data to produce an Impact Report posted at completion of program

Core Programs
