About the conference

The NETC Conference is an annual event at a volunteering university. NETC members from across the United States gather to share their experiences and learn from one another.

The conference is an essential means of furthering the Community’s networking and collaboration goals, and is intended for anyone interested in the use and application of information technology in the Cooperative Extension System and/or at a land-grant university. If you’ve read this far, you should come!

Highlights of the conference include:

  • Keynote speakers
  • Sponsored sessions
  • Networking and collaboration opportunities
  • Participant track sessions

The first conference was held in Blacksburg, Virginia in 1986. A key organizer of the first conference was Bill Murphy, who passed away in 2001 and has been remembered at subsequent conferences through the NETC Bill Murphy Distinguished Speaker award. The list of past conferences documents more than 35 years of NETC history.
