Futures forum scheduled for today in Pecos

County Extension Agent-F&CS
Everybody is talking about the changing face of Texas and the communities in which we live. For every issue and concern, there is a long list of ideas for solving the problems that a community faces.

The fact is, concerned citizens, agencies, state and local governments, nonprofit organizations and associations often work at cross purposes or duplicate efforts to address these issues.

The Texas Agricultural Extension Service hosted an Open Forum in every county of the state, and has listened to more than 12,000 citizens regarding their needs and concerns. Rather than just identify the needs that will affect our agency in the next 3-5 years, we decided to add value by encourating other organizations to become involved to tackle the challenges presented at the Open Forum.

The issues identified at the Open Forum Meeting are designed to stimulate thinking, discussion and action among leaders in this county. You will seem many of the needs and concerns directly impact your organization and its mission.

What we found fascinated us, challenged us and inspired us to go far beyond our initial scope of work that is the mission of the Texas Agricultural Extension Service - and ask for your help.

The community is invited to participate in the Focus Forum, hosted by the Texas Agricultural Extension Service in Reeves-Loving Counties on Tuesday, May 11, at 7 p.m., in the Pecos Community Center, 508 S. Oak in Pecos.

As part of the Texas Community Futures Forum, this event is the first step towards action. Recognizing the demands on your time and attention, we have planned an intense, working session conducted by trained facilitators. At the end of the Focus Forum we will have goals, objectives and action plans for responding to the issues identified in this report.

We sincerely hope you and/or you representatives cna attend and share your thoughts and expertise. The forces of change are merging to create a different world. Here is an opportunity to take stock and redefine what we can do and how we can do it together more effectively.
