On Networking # 32

The attached announcement was prepared to accompany the Farming Systems
Symposium preregistration materials being mailed out by the University of
Arkansas. The announcement includes two items: 1) information and a
registration form related to an FSSP pre-Symposium workshop (FSR/E
Training: Some Practical Considerations for Delivery); and 2) a preliminary
schedule of the FSSP Annual meetings, October 21 and 22, following the
Arkansas Symposium.

The purpose of this issue of On Networking is to clarify information
regarding the FSSP Annual Meeting Schedule. The clarification evolves from
a telephone conference on July 2, 1987, which included the FSSP Advisory
Council and core staff.

The schedule for the FSSP Annual Meetings is correct. These meetings
will officially conclude at 12:00 noon on October 22, 1987. At the
conclusion of the FSSP Annual Meetings, provisions have been made to
accommodate a Network Forum (including only the mechanics of reserving a
room and scheduling a time).

The Network Forum is not an FSSP function. FSSP core staff will not
organize or officiate at this meeting and will not be setting the issues.

As the FSSP ends in December, with it ends the formal, institutional
affiliation that the FSSP Support Entities have had during the life of this
project. With the end of this institutional affiliation, the formal status
also ends for Program Associates, Administrative Coordinators and Program
Leaders. The Network Forum has been devised in response to the expressed
interest of FSSP Support Entities in devising or maintaining some sort of a
post-FSSP network for farming systems practitioners.

In the past, FSSP Annual Meetings have included working sessions to
address technical issues and other concerns as they related to farming
systems methodology and experience or to the future of the FSSP and to its
Support Entity structure. While Support Entities will have an opportunity
this year to report on their current and future activity during the
business session of the FSSP Annual Meetings on the morning of October
22nd, and the "current" portion of these reports may relate to the FSSP,
any "future activity" will have to reflect independent or collaborative
initiatives without FSSP. Working, or technical sessions are not scheduled
as part of the FSSP Annual Meetings this year; both scheduled sessions will
be plenary business meetings.

Over the past several years, as FSR/E has con-

have developed a three-hour workshop to present
some practical considerations for FSR/E training.
Topics will include:
Planning a training program
Setting up a shortcourse/workshop
Managing a shortcourse/workshop
Identifying and choosing training materials
