Time to Review FY2015 POW and We Need Your Help!

As part of the Extension program planning process, it is necessary to perform assessments on our reporting system and its content. Extension is preparing to start FY2015 and we would like to get your feedback on content we will be including in AIMS.  

The results will assist in improving the AIMS you will see and use this coming year in your reporting and in showing program outcomes and impacts.

Below are simple instructions to facilitate your review.
NOTE: Comments will be closed on August 1st.
