NETC (National Extension Technology Conference) is an annual event, not a formal organization. It is usually held in May or June at a Land-Grant Institution whose employees volunteer to host it. In some ways, NETC is a virtual organization of people interested in the use and application of information technology in the Cooperative Extension System.
NETC is an opportunity for sharing and learning about innovative types and uses of information technology. Participation is not limited to faculty and staff of Extension. In fact, anyone with an interest in information technology and its use in higher and continuing education, as well as in organization management, is welcome to participate.
NETC is guided by the NETC Steering Committee, a 10-person committee,
6 members of which are elected by Extension IT professionals nationwide.
Three members represent institutions who have hosted or will be hosting
and one represents the Agricultural Communicators in Education, which
meets concurrently with NETC every other year.
