ANR specialist on USDA jobs panel

UC ANR specialist Dave Campbell, the director of the UC California Communities Program, will take part in the USDA's video forum about rural unemployment tomorrow, which will be broadcast at 19 USDA sites around California, according to the Central Valley Business Times. Curiously, the Times publicized the video forum, but it is not open to the public.

Input from a series of nearly 40 local jobs forums (that were open to the public) held across California this week will be summarized for a final report at the video conference. The local jobs forums, listed here, end today.

"By concluding with a statewide videoconference, we hope to concentrate the focus on the best ideas to retain and create rural jobs, and share them with the Administration," Glenda Humiston, state director of USDA Rural Development, was quoted in the story. "Jobs agencies and public officials can lay the groundwork for economic growth, but the best ideas for continued growth and job creation often come from the community."

The video forum will be presented at 2 p.m. at the following USDA offices:
Alturas  
Auburn
Bakersfield 
Bishop
Davis
El Centro 
Elk Grove 
Eureka
Fresno
Indio
Merced
Modesto
Moreno Valley 
Oroville
