New tabletop displays
Are you hosting an upcoming event for researchers, state or regional council members, legislators, or other constituents? If so, you need to reserve one of our new tabletop displays.
This display speaks directly to researchers and communicates the opportunities MU Extension has to collaborate with them on getting their research to the people of Missouri.
This display is designed to be used at events where constituents, such as donors, legislators and council members are in attendance. It communicates how MU Extension affects lives, businesses and communities across the state with specific examples of successes and available programming.
The three-panel displays measure 64”w x 32”t and will fit perfectly on a 6-foot or an 8-foot table. Each display weighs 19 pounds and can be set up in just minutes. Each display has a handle and a shoulder strap for convenient transport.
Due to the weight, the display cannot be shipped so it must be picked up in Columbia. Contact Laura Lindsey at email@example.com to reserve.
Have you heard about MUEXT101?
On August 3 a social media campaign called MU Extension 101 was launched. The purpose is to expand our online audience by showing the diverse ways we affect people’s lives. Every Monday and Thursday, a new picture will be posted on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram. Visit http://extension.missouri.edu/muext101/home.aspx to see the previous posts.
Your assistance is requested to ensure the success of this campaign:
- Help spread the message by sharing, retweeting, pinning and liking the posts on the extension accounts on your personal pages and on your county social media accounts.
- If you have an engaging picture that helps tell the extension story (and you have the proper photo release signed), please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org along with a brief description and how the picture connects to an extension program, service or publication. Photos should be high-resolution.
myExtension release delayed
While the planning section of myExtension is live, the release of the event scheduling and reporting sections has been delayed.
“We had planned for most of the remaining modules of myExtension to go live on Sept. 15,” said Mark Stillwell, extension project administrator. “However, we want to release additional modules only after they have been reviewed and tested to ensure a quality product.”
WebApps will continue to be available until myExtension is ready. All faculty and staff should continue to schedule and report from their approved plan in WebApps until further notice. All program planning data entered into myExtension will be available in WebApps for scheduling and reporting, and data entered in WebApps will be available in myExtension when it is released.
The settings and event scheduling sections are in the final programming stage, and usability testing will begin soon. Sections that will include success stories and program impacts are in the early programming stages.
“Don’t forget that all reporting for FY 2015 should be complete by midnight on Sept. 14,” reminds Paula Hudson, ETCS database programmer/analyst. “At that time, WebApps will be locked down to ensure consistent demographic data in future reports. You cannot schedule or report on FY 2015 events once WebApps is locked down.”
