NCRCRD: Brain Research & Change Strategies

About the webinar:
"2010 North Central Regional Center for Rural Development Speakers Series" focuses on ways that Extension systems can engage and collaborate better using new organizational systems and tools. To help achieve this goal we will sponsor a series of web-based sessions on topics related to working differently.
