Welcome to NETC

Bienvenue à la Nouvelle Orléans!

The LSU AgCenter welcomes you to the 27th annual National Extension Technology Conference. We hope you have a wonderful time in New Orleans, on the banks of the Mississippi River, and that you leave rejuvenated and inspired. As you may know, NETC is an annual gathering of IT professionals from land-grant universities and colleges across the country.

This is a great opportunity to learn from colleagues at other universities and to share successes and challenges in a variety of technology areas including web development, programming, networking, digital audio and video, distance education, social media and more. We hope you  find great opportunities to learn about new approaches and technologies and share your own experiences and knowledge, as well.

404 Awards Banquet – Dinner Cruise Aboard the Paddlewheeler Creole Queen

Named for the infamous 404 Error, the NETC 404 Awards are a hallowed and time-honored tradition. Individuals in the NETC community come together in the spirit of fun to celebrate and exchange stories about their most interesting, challenging and entertaining technology-related experiences over the past year.

Although the categories may vary from year to year as determined by the hosts, the person with the most compelling story in each category receives a coveted 404 Award. Participants present their stories to their peers in attendance, and winners are determined by audience response.

This year, the 404 Awards will be held on board the Paddlewheeler Creole Queen, where we will cruise the mighty Mississippi River while enjoying a lavish Creole buffet in elegantly appointed dining rooms.
