Extension Launches Conference App

We’re excited to announce that we will utilize a mobile app for Extension State Conference for the first time ever this year.

The app will be an essential tool for Extension conference, replacing printed programs as the agenda while serving as the central source for schedule information and “all things conference.”

Conference-goers will now have access to real-time schedule changes, hotel floor maps, Wi-Fi info, program updates and event announcements, all on their mobile devices.

Download the app by following this link on your smartphone or tablet:

Instructions for Using the Extension Conference App

We’ve prepared a brief how-to guide to help you download and utilize the app, as well as to provide guidance for creating your personal schedule.

Download the App Instructions here.

*Note that the app is not connected to the LMS system this year. You will need to do a one-time selection of your individual sessions and events to create a personal schedule at the beginning of conference (see the instructions document for guidance as needed).

We plan to develop a custom app that will be compatible with an updated registration system for future conferences.

Social Media & Sharing

We’d also like to share the new official hashtag for conference: #NCCEConf

This hashtag will be used annually, hence the absence of a specific year, and should be included with social media posts relating to conference.

When using the hashtag, your posts and pics will be collected in a feed in the app. We’ll monitor the feed to find content to feature on our state platforms and in future materials, as well as to find ways to enhance the conference experience this year and beyond.

The hashtag also provides another way to share and help one another, so make sure to talk about your experience, ask questions, share feedback, post pics and help create a conversation that endures for years to come!

Contacts & App Updates

In an effort to streamline app updates during conference, we ask that you please refer to the following process for submitting requests for changes:
