NETC Conference

The NETC Conference is an annual event. It is usually held in May or June at a land-grant university, however, the host institution is welcome to choose whatever dates they like. The conference is for people interested in the use and application of information technology in the Cooperative Extension System and/or at a land-grant university.

Due to COVID-19 concerns and social distancing, the 2020 NETC Conference changes are being discussed. Check back soon for details.

The conference started in 1986 and was held in Blacksburg, Virginia. A key organizer of the first conference was Bill Murphy, who passed away in 2001, and has been remembered at many conferences through the NETC Bill Murphy Distinguished Speaker.
