The Arkansas Galaxy Conference is an annual professional development activity for Extension employees.
The conference is a joint effort between the Arkansas Association of Cooperative Extension
Specialists (AACES), the Arkansas Association of Extension 4-H Agents (AAE4-HA), Epsilon
Sigma Phi (ESP) and the National Extension Association of Family and Consumer Sciences
- Arkansas Affiliate (NEAFCS-AR). You do not have to be a member of these professional associations to attend the Arkansas
The conference features professional improvement seminars, presentations and posters
from your Extension peers and awards recognition and presentation. The Arkansas Galaxy
Conference is a great opportunity to network with your Extension peers from across
the state and all four of Extension's program areas.
What is the S.T.A.R. Conference?
Based on attendee feedback, 2020 conference organizers decided to streamline the 2020
Galaxy conference to a one-day professional development and association meeting opportunity.
Since the conference is one day only this year, (and stars are a single entity within
a galaxy : ) we temporarily changed the name to the S.T.A.R. Conference: Skills To Achieve Results.
The 2020 conference was canclled due to COVID precautions.
Who can attend?Anyone who qualifies to be a part of one of the following professional organizations
can attend. (However you do NOT have to be a member to attend.)
