The Mid-Atlantic Consortium
The 2017 MAC In-Service Conference will be held May 24 and 25 at the Woodlands Inn and Resort, Wilkes-Barre, PA
Who Should Attend
The audience for this program is dairy Extension professionals, veterinarians, and consultants in states from the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions. The program is designed to allow for ample time for questions for speakers and interaction with Extension colleagues. Participants will also have the opportunity to learn from successful programs developed by Extension practitioners and to participate in case studies.
What to Expect
A notebook is provided with the power point presentations so participants may take notes specific to ideas presented by speakers. In addition, participants will receive a CD-ROM with speaker PowerPoint presentations and other resources such as articles, worksheets, and publications related to the topics on the program.
The W. K. Kellogg Foundation from 1998-2002 funded the start-up of the Mid-Atlantic Consortium (MAC). The Kellogg funding for this project ended in 2002. Now the funding source is primarily through registration fees of participants and sponsorships from industry and government. The program is developed by a steering committee from 7 land-grant universities in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions, plus The Ohio State University from the Midwest region.
