An Invitation from KACDEP
The Kansas Association of Community Development Extension Professionals invites you to membership or affiliation in our Professional Association.
Members of the Kansas Association of Community Development Extension Professionals (KACDEP) are any county/district, area and state staff who work with community development/vitality. As a growing organization in Kansas that is chartered with the National Association of Community Development Extension Professionals (NACDEP), it is our intent that KACDEP will provide members with more opportunities for professional development, as well as opportunities to recognize and showcase outstanding work in the community development field. Even those who are members of another extension professional association are welcome to join KACDEP as an affiliate member. It is a great way for dual-appointment extension professionals to receive support for all of their varied job duties.
Full membership dues are $140 per year, which includes dues to NACDEP and Kansas JCEP. Members of another programmatic extension association and non-extension employees can join KACDEP as an affiliate member for $45 each year with all rights and privileges of active members. Affiliate members are not members in NACDEP or KS-JCEP. If you have questions about membership, contact Membership Chair Marlin Bates or any KACDEP officer:
President: Dr. Nozella Brown
Past President: Tara Markley
President-Elect: David Key
Secretary-Treasurer: Nancy Daniels
In the past year, KACDEP produced two high-quality professional development opportunities.
• Essential Strategies for Racial Justice and Equity; 272 participants from 23 states participated.
• For Us All: Creating Thriving Healthy Communities was a KSRE Annual Conference Pre-Conference opportunity with 55 participants.
