National Urban Extension Leaders-North Central Regional Caucus 

Welcome to the registration site for the NUEL – NC Regional Caucus to be held downtown St. Louis, MO May 9-10, 2018 at the Marriot Grand. The organizing committee has been hard at work to arrange sessions that will be both inspiring and engaging. The goals of the Regional Caucus are to provide a platform for program design and development with an emphasis on interstate and interdisciplinary programming.

Urban-serving Extension Professionals working in the areas of Youth Development, Community Capacity Building, Community Food Systems and Urban Extension Administration will enjoy this opportunity to gather with peers to discuss uniquely-urban issues and lay the groundwork for regional collaboration.
