Community Resource Development; Proceedings of National Extension Workshop (2nd, Michigan State University, July 11-22, 1966).
Michigan State Univ., East Lansing.
The Second National Workshop in Community Resource Development (CRD) was planned to provide training for extension personnel; representatives came from Canada and Puerto Rico as well as from the United States. It emphasized the development of a comprehensive framework for CRD and operation materials for carrying out programs in the states and provinces. Papers presented covered a definition, the economics, and organizational improvement of CRD; accepting the Extension challenge for increasing its program; and overcoming human resistance to change. Twelve committees attacked problems of particular concern, including the role of Extension; concept and philosophy of resource development in Alabama; identifying, molding and influencing leadership; and motivation. Among other areas discussed were the philosophy of CRD, the role of its regional and area organizations, and its relationship to other programs--such as agriculture and tourism. The document includes an evaluation of the workshop by the participants. (nl)
