Needs Assessment

Socorro County Residents/Agricultural Producers, we have launched a communications based needs assessment to determine 1) your preferred means of communication and how you would like to receive information from the extension office, 2) what your technological capabilities are, and 3) what your primary area of interest is. With this information, we hope to be able to disseminate more information more quickly that is tailored more to each of your needs. Please take a brief moment of your time to fill out this online survey. If you prefer a written survey, give us a call!
