MFLN “Network News” – November 2017

Welcome to the November edition of MFLN Network News! It has been a busy fall in the world of the MFLN. Check out some of the highlights …

Military family service providers and Cooperative Extension professionals joined the Personal Finance concentration area throughout the month of September for the 30 Days of Savings Challenge. Over the course of the challenge, participants received weekly savings messages and joined Facebook Live check-in sessions while working towards a savings goal of $100. On October 10, Dr. Michael Gutter hosted a discussion session to recap savings strategies and lessons learned. Missed it? Check out the recording at https://learn.extension.org/events/3162.

The MFLN also hosted its inaugural virtual conference September 26-29. This free four-day virtual learning and networking experience brought together professionals working with military service members and their families to discuss “Learning through Change”. The keynote and session recordings are now available on the conference homepage.

There was significant interest throughout the week in opportunities to continue the conference conversation. If you are interested in additional discussion and activities around the theme of professional and organizational change, please share your thoughts and ideas with us at a planning meeting scheduled for November 16 at 1:00 pm Eastern in our APAN Connect system. Initial ideas include working out loud groups and virtual networking activities to support professionals grappling with change in their workplaces.
