Dear 1994 Land-grant Colleagues and FALCON members,
The First Americans Land-Grant Consortium (FALCON) is pleased to announce that registration is now open for its 10th Annual Conference, scheduled for November 8-11, 2014, at the Radisson Blu Minneapolis.  Please register for the conference now.
This year's conference theme is Celebrating 20 Years of Success:  The 1994 Land-Grants.  The conference will include discussions on successes in teaching, extension services and research that benefit Native American students, communities and lands.
As always, the conference will focus on research, teaching, and community programs at 1994 Land-grant Institutions conducted by students, faculty and staff.  There will be a strong student focus, and tribal college students are especially invited to participate and present their work.  The conference will also include USDA National Institute for Food and Agriculture (NIFA) Project Director sessions, as well as training workshops and information-sharing opportunities. 
On Tuesday, November 11 (Day 4), sessions will feature special discussions and training related to building capacity to conduct research and community development.  Please plan your travel so that you can take advantage of these important sessions.
