National Council for Agricultural Education, Alexandria, VA.
Representatives of 11 organizations playing a leading role in agricultural education (AE) attended a conference to discuss their vision of AE in the year 2000. During the conference, the issues of greatest concern to AE were prioritized, specific strategies/solutions to accomplish each priority were identified, an action plan to achieve desired outcomes and a mission statement unifying the entire AE profession (grades K-14 and adult) were developed. Adjustments in AE organizational structures to foster productive and efficient national leadership were proposed. Among the items included in the action agenda were the following: clarify/define authority, staff, leadership, and other roles; propose shared management services and overhead reduction; create and leverage job openings for executive director positions; consider consolidating AE boards; create an AE budget; and provide training for boards. (Appendixes constituting approximately 75% of this document contain the following: participant list, conference agenda, AE organization profiles, extracts from a study to identify high priority AE issues, list of priority issue strategies and action plans, general session notes, congressional forum speaker summaries, conference memorandum of understanding and news release, mission statement development notes, and matrix of strategies and promises.)
