Reflecting back on 2021 with our efforts in staying connected, we all agree that we had so much fun meeting online during each session of New Year, New Way with ECA. From learning about the air fryer, to making a great biscuit, and how to declutter your home, we have all learned many new skills together!

Since we are still facing restrictions on in-person meetings, we decided to continue this online series to stay connected to our Extension and Community Association members as well as connect with new individuals in our communities!

You will have a chance to learn from new faces this year as we have expanded our cross-county programming efforts! These professionals are gearing up to provide you with the best current research-based information in a wide variety of topics that will hopefully leave you educated, engaged, and empowered after each session! Want to learn more about Extension and Community Association (ECA) or how to become a volunteer in your county? Join us this year as we connect with one another to learn new life skills while being At Home with ECA!

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.
