Journal of NACAA, Call for Papers

Dear NACAA Member,


September 15t  is the fall article submission deadline for publication in the December 1st   issue of the Journal of the NACAA.  Submission guidelines can be found at


This is an opportunity for NACAA members to publish some of the great work you all are doing.  The Journal of NACAA considers diverse topics that include current research, case studies, examples of outstanding Extension programming, and innovative ideas.  Non-NACAA members can be authors as long as a co-author is a member.  However, we highly encourage non-member authors to join NACAA.


Publishing in the Journal of NACAA is a great way to build your resume/CV and document your successes as you work toward attaining promotion or tenure in your institution.


If you have any questions, please let me know.

 NACAA 2020 Virtual  AM/PIC - Registration

Dear NACAA Members,


I hope this finds you well.


As I noted in a previous correspondence, due to Covid-19 restrictions, the NACAA Board has moved to go “virtual” with the 2020 AM/PIC and we have opted to use Microsoft Teams as the platform for this years meeting.  To do this successfully we will have to add you to the 2020 NACAA AM/PIC Team in advance of the meeting.  Please use this registration link to sign-up (Register Here). It's just 7 short questions, and should only take 1 minute or less to complete.  If you are already a Teams user it will enhance your experience if you enter the same email address that you use to access Teams.  Many land grant universities have Microsoft Teams and you may want to check with your IT people if you are not sure.  It is imperative that you register, even if you only plan to participate in 1 event, as you will not have access to the Virtual AM/PIC without being added as a Team member.


One of the benefits of using Teams is that you will have only one link to sign onto the annual meeting and then you will be able to negotiate on your own between sessions within Teams, which will allow you to move easily between concurrent member presentations.  As nearly all of us are first timers to this new world of virtual conferencing we will be hosting a series of on-line orientations to help get you up to speed and enhance your on-line experience.


Teams also features a virtual lounge where you will be able to hang out and chat with old friends and make new one.


Please register early and we look forward to seeing you online for the 2020 NACAA AM/PIC.  The dates once again are Monday, September 28 thru Thursday, October 1, 2020.  A copy of the day to day schedule is now posted online on the homepage - or directly at:


Stay safe and all the best.
