As part of its professional development series, the Western Center for Metropolitan Extension and Research (WCMER) is holding the 2nd Extension as Urban Policy Advisors Workshop on December 1-2, 2015 in Sacramento, CA to:

  • Understand how policy is made at the local, regional and state levels
  • Learn about the relationship between programs and policy and how policy impacts system change

This workshop is geared for Cooperative Extension professionals working in metropolitan communities to learn about why working at the policy level is important (relative to direct education programming); understanding how governmental systems are organized, what makes good policy, how to use science in policy development, local examples of policy development and hands-on exercises.

The Extension as Urban Policy Advisors workshop will precede the National Urban Extension Leaders (NUEL) network meeting, Dec 2-5, 2015 also in Sacramento, CA.
