2021 New Year, New Way With ECA Learning Series

New Year, New Way with ECA

The pandemic has presented many challenges but one that is reoccurring is not being able to meet together in person like we are used to. To try and connect in a new way, we are offering an online learning series that will be in place of our usual district leader lesson training for our Extension and Community Association (ECA) club members.

The Extension Community Association is a volunteer group with the purpose to empower individuals and families to improve their quality of living through continuing education, leadership development and community service.

To try and connect to new members we are using this learning series as an opportunity to advertise to individuals in our communities interested in learning more about what the ECA does and how they can get involved in their respective counties. Come connect with us from the safety of your home to hear a little bit about each county’s ECA and to learn a fun new skill!

These learning sessions will be on the first Thursday of each month at 11 a.m. Registration is required to attend these Zoom sessions!
