The EDEN Professional Development Committee accepts webinar proposals on a continuous basis.  EDEN webinars must address a disaster-related topic in one of Extension’s main program areas: Agriculture, Nature Resources, Community Development, Family and Consumer Sciences, 4-H Youth Development, and Sea Grant.  Preference is given to webinars lead by an EDEN Delegate. EDEN does not accept webinars promoting outside organizations, products, or for-profit services.

To submit a webinar proposal for review, complete the following form: http://bit.ly/EDEN-PD-Webinar-Info-Submission. The submission form requires the webinar title, a short description of the webinar that will be used for marketing purposes, the name of each presenter, brief bio(s) for presenter(s), and a headshot photo.

Webinar Submission Process and Timeline

  1. Submit webinar proposals via the EDEN website – http://bit.ly/EDEN-PD-Webinar-Info-Submission
  2. The proposals will be reviewed by the Professional Development Committee for approval
  3. Once approved, a member of the Professional Development Committee or EDEN Staff will contact the lead presenter to schedule the webinar
  4. Using the information provided in the proposal the EDEN Support Team will create marketing materials for the webinar, including a registration email to be sent to EDEN delegates and social media posts.
  5. The Professional Development Committee will assign a moderator to the webinar as a host, the moderator will state the webinar, introduces the presenters, share questions for the chat, and close the webinar.
  6. After the webinar, a recording of the session will be posted to the EDEN Website and YouTube.

In most cases, the time to process a webinar proposal from submission to the webinar event is about 3 weeks. However, the Professional Development Committee encourages presenters to submit in advance to ensure their preferred webinar timeslot is available. EDEN webinars are hosted on the Zoom Platform.
