Duggan, Gandy visit D.C.
Local Oregon State University Extension agents Scott Duggan, for agriculture, and Jon Gandy, for 4-H, attended the Public Issues Leadership Development conference in Washington, D.C., April 8-12. The conference theme was "Civil Dialogue in the Public Arena."
The conference was designed to provide professional development to enhance advocacy and public policy education skills.
It also was geared to broaden the understanding of public policy issues that impact Extension and Extension clientele.
The two men also spent two days on Capitol Hill where they met with Rep. Greg Walden, a representative from Sen. Ron Wyden's office, and Sen. Jeff Merkley.
