The 2018 Joint COPs Meeting will focus on “Collaborations Across Borders” by looking at Extension, research, and teaching programs that have shown success in working across the U.S.-Mexican border and beyond. We hope to host speakers from both sides of the border involved with the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT), migrant workers, the Binational Border Meeting on Agricultural Extension, teacher exchanges, and cultural awareness programs. Time will be given for discussion of development of additional cross-border collaboration. Finally, individual section committees on organization and policy will hold business meetings.
Members of ACOP, ECOP, ESCOP, ICOP, and AHS Executive Committees, should attend the Joint COPs Meeting. The Joint Meeting begins on Monday, July 16th at 3:00 pm with a Mexican cultural event and dinner. The meeting concludes on Wednesday, July 18th at 12:00 p.m. Please note that we are also having an optional Tequila Express Tour excursion on Thursday, July 19th from 10:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. interested attendees can add this to their registration for an additional $75/per person.
