Arkansas Galaxy Conference at the University of Arkansas Winthrop Rockefeller Institute, atop Petit Jean Mountain, is an annual professional development activity for Extension employees. The conference is a joint effort between the Arkansas Association of Extension Specialists, Arkansas Association of Extension 4-H agents, Epsilon Sigma Phi and Arkansas Extension Association of Family and Consumer Sciences. You do not have to be a member of these professional associations to attend Galaxy. The conference features professional improvement seminars, presentations and posters from your Extension peers and awards recognition and presentation. Galaxy is a great opportunity to network with your Extension peers from across the state.
During the Galaxy conference you can also engage your culinary senses at a cooking class, celebrate the outstanding accomplishments in Extension at the awards banquet, and outbid your peers at silent and live auctions to support the associations.
