Hi ILCAE Members and Advisory Friends to ILCAE:
Hats off to Greg Webb, ILCAE Vice-Chair, in assisting us in making this webinar happen.  Please feel free to register and join us on November 13th.  It will also be recorded and uploaded to after.   We have 10 individuals registered so far.   Any assistance in forwarding this email to friends and colleagues of schools without an agriculture program would be appreciated.  The Zoom meeting link will be provided after registration is completed. 

We now have 40 students student teaching in Ag Ed this fall and spring 2021 that will graduate with a degree in Ag Ed ready to teach in May, 2021.  We need to empower more schools to have AFNR programs as we have an increased supply of teacher candidates.  Thank you.  Dean
