The Fall volume of the Journal of the NACAA will be published on June 1st.
Any successful Extension Agent, Specialist or related faculty likely doing something worth publishing. Ideas include current research, masters/doctoral thesi, case studies and bright ideas are all worthy of consideration. Non-NACAA members can be authors as long as the lead author is a member.
Publishing in a peer reviewed journal is a very significant resume/CV builder whether or not you are in the hunt for tenure or promotion. Successful authors will have the opportunity for their Dean, Director or board to be personally notified by the journal of their successful submission.
If you have any questions, need help or would like to bounce an article idea off of me, please do not hesitate to contact me.
***I will be in Indonesia teaching poultry rearing from March 12-30. Any questions submitted to the journal during that time will be answered when I return***
Four individuals, one from each NACAA region, will annually be selected for this two year program on a competitive basis (after the initial year there will be 8 individuals in the program in any given year).
The seminars will occur in the spring and fall of each year with the specific date determined by the host state and SARE region, with input from the participants.
Economy air travel will be provided to successful applicants to attend each training seminar in the selected region.
Meals and lodging expenses will also be paid by the program sponsors, but incidental and additional expenses will be the responsibility of the participants.
Successful participants will also receive a complete USDA SARE library courtesy of the Sustainable Agriculture Network (SAN) in Washington, DC and a $1,500 stipend to be used for program support, materials or hardware, including the purchase of equipment, such as computers, if desired.
If you have any questions or if I can be of further assistance please let me know.
