Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, v109 n3 p23-30 Sum 2017
Extension professionals in the Western Region proclaimed The Timberline Manifesto at their 100-year celebration, "Centennial on the Summit," at Mount Hood, OR, in 2014. Family and consumer sciences (FCS) leaders relate this platform to the future of FCS: our opportunities for success in engagement, integration, technology, demand-driven programs, open source, culture, and identity/staffing. This article provides implications of societal issues including families, work, health, and finances, and suggests how Extension will be well positioned to address them.
