November: Communicate for Community

In part 3 of the series, we will explore how we can use communication for community – that is, developing a community of followers with whom we can share Extension’s research-based information. We’ve talked about branding our information and looking to all that we are doing in our various projects and activities to generate content. Participants in RLC #1 had great discussion in the chat box, effectively asking questions and sharing ideas with others. In RLC #2, we used breakout sessions to have smaller discussions and chat with each other about what we are doing locally. In part 3, we’ll put all of that together. Representatives of the Georgia Master Gardener Association (GMGA) will briefly join in the conversation, as well.

In the spirit of staying well and minimizing travel, we will continue to meet via Zoom for RLC #3. While this is a different format than we envisioned when we planned the series, we feel it is an opportunity to safely come together and discuss timely topics. RLCs are FREE, but registration is required. Register here.
