This is your newsletter as members, so we are always happy to publish pieces from members. In particular, we welcome reflections on extension and outreach activities (even if they have not gone perfectly well), opinion pieces, as well as contributions from young extensionists for the Young Extensionist Corner. We also like to hear from members that were recognised for their service (so they can be an inspiration to all of us), and from members with interesting acheivements.
