Presentation proposals are now being accepted for the 2024 Association of Natural Resources Extension Professionals (ANREP) Biennial National Conference, May 6-8, 2024 in Hershey, PA. 

This year's planning committee is very interested in broad perspectives on natural resources Extension-related topics. To that end, we are welcoming presentation proposals from Extension professionals in all of the JCEP member associations. 

The Biennial National Conference is ANREP's premier event, bringing together Extension professionals for three days of learning and camaraderie. It's a great opportunity to share your outstanding work with colleagues from around the nation and gain ideas from others to apply to your programs. Presentation abstracts are being solicited for a variety of natural resources topics (i.e., forestry, climate change, water resources, agriculture, etc.) and/or focus areas (i.e., program design & delivery, technology, evaluation, etc.). Abstracts highlighting programs or research activities that include diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice efforts are especially encouraged. 

Abstract guidelines and submission are available here.  Deadline to submit is October 31.

The Congress for the New Urbanism’s 2024 Charter Awards are open for submissions through December 31, 2023. CNU's Charter Awards recognize outstanding achievements in architecture, landscape and urban design, and planning worldwide.

Applicants can submit a project on the CNU website at Project submissions are encouraged to reflect the Congress Focus for CNU 32, which will be Restorative Urbanism. This year's Focus aligns with the approach to city-building that our host city, Cincinnati, OH has embraced: restoring its existing neighborhoods and nodes and energy centers with more walkable mixed-use urban investment. However, any project that meets the general criteria established by the Charter will be considered. 

The Charter Awards recognize projects at three scales:

  • The Region: Metropolis, City, and Town
  • Neighborhood, District, and Corridor
  • Block, Street, and Building

Projects that encourage walkable mixed-use urbanism, embody a wide range of the Charter of the New Urbanism principles, and are currently built or being implemented are strongly encouraged to apply. Student projects are also encouraged to apply.

CNU has a limited number of need-based application scholarships available for the 2024 Charter Awards. If you are interested in submitting a project with scholarship support, please contact Lauren Mayer at

Submissions for the 2024 Charter Awards will be open until December 31, 2023. If you have any questions, please contact Lauren Mayer at
