  • We Want YOU: For the Military Families Learning Network

    by Anne Mims Adrian, Kyle Kostelecky and Sarah Baughman

    Just like the classic World War I and II posters, the Military Families Learning Network is asking you to become involved in serving those who serve. The Military Families Learning Network was created to work with military family service professionals in the Cooperative Extension System and DoD and Branch Services (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps). We will share with you how we are using social media, networking, collaboration, evaluation, and partnerships to engage and provide resources to those who serve our nation’s military families. This Learning Network has been creative in its community management style and how it has evolved and will grow. Currently, there is heavy cross collaboration with four other CoPs and we expect to expand this partnership further. We’ll share some of the successes and excitement with that process and how we had to overcome some barriers internal and external to the “system”. We will also share some valuable lessons learned as we have been working closely with two Federal agencies – the Department of Defense and USDA. The bottom line is that “We Do Want You!” Come and hear how you can become involved with the Military Families Learning Network.

    At 4:30pm to 5:30pm, Tuesday 28th June
