What is NETC?

NETC (National Extension Technology Conference) is an annual event, not a formal organization.

It is usually held in May or June at a land-grant university whose employees volunteer to host it. In some ways, NETC is a virtual organization of people interested in the use and application of information technology in the Cooperative Extension System and/or at a Land Grant university.

NETC is an opportunity for sharing and learning about innovative types and uses of information technology. Participation is not limited to faculty and staff of Extension. In fact, anyone with an interest in information technology and its use in higher and continuing education, as well as in organization management, is welcome to participate.

NETC Steering Committee

NETC is guided by the ten members of the NETC Steering Committee. Six members are elected by Extension IT professionals nationwide. Three members represent institutions that have hosted or will be hosting NETC, and one represents the Association for Communication Excellence (ACE), which meets jointly with NETC every other year.

NETC Mailing List

People interested in information technology within Extension also communicate with each other through the extech mailing list hosted by eXtension. This email list is used to distribute announcements about NETC as well as to serve as a forum through which subscribers can solicit ideas and suggestions from their colleagues throughout the country. Participation is not controlled -- it is an open list. Information on subscribing is listed below.


Subscriptions to the mailing list are managed using the communities feature of the Extension "People" Directory

To subscribe to the mailing list, join the Extension Technology Community within People.

To send messages to the list, use

Public Archives

Public archives of the list are available, but in the process of being transitioned between services as part of an overall mailing list migration strategy for eXtension-hosted lists.
