Extension educators should be aware of the efforts in using social media to draw attention to the house resolution. The web conference on Tuesday will review those efforts.

Also, Cooperative Extension professionals are encouraged to:

1. Join the national efforts on Facebook at and Twitter at @CESValue and #coopext

2. Provide success stories from CES efforts around the country.

3. Ask their constituents to also join and share their stories in these spaces.
