Launching of the Military Families Learning Network

Did you miss the conference or where there workshops you were unable to attend then checkout the Conference Proceeding now posted.  Proceedings include: Keynote Presentations, Research Presentations along with workshops, computer labs, program showcases and other events.

The launch of the Military Families Learning Network last week at the DoD USDA Family Resilience Conference was very well received by Cooperative Extension, Department of Defense, and branch service family professionals.  There was a great deal of excitement and interest surrounding the launch of eXtension's military families efforts.

We are excited to grow this network in the coming months, connecting with many military family service professionals, creating professional development web conferences and courses, and continuing conversations around child care, personal finance, families, network literacy, and
other topics.
