People, Purpose and Passion: The Pathway to Success

This year's conference will take place Sept. 28 - Oct. 2 in Corvallis.  It centers around a special keynote speaker, and includes great session, tours, networking opportunities, Snap-Ed training, and the Cooperators and OSUEA Awards. 

The Conference was designed by the OSUEA Board, in cooperation with Extension Administration, based on the extensive Qualtrics survey polling of Extension staff across the state.

Keynote - OSUEA invites Jay Rifenbary, renowned international speaker

His exciting “No Excuse!” program teaches, validates and supports the importance of key principles and skills, such as self-control, personal respect, forgiveness, passion and positive attitude, as they pertain to one's personal and professional success.

Confrence attendees will recieve a copy of Jay's book "No Excuse! – Incorporating Core Values, Accountability and Balance into Your Life and Career"

Be sure to arrive to the conference for Part I of Jay's presentation Monday Sept 28th at noon (lunch provided).
