The human relationship is a complex and dynamic interaction. As living creatures, we need and crave the opportunity to interact with other humans by speaking, listening, and spending time with them. Most of this interaction tends to be mutual and cordial. Yet, at times, the interaction can be laced with tension and discord. If left alone, the tension can lead to conflict that may damage the relationship or even become volatile.

Within a given day, human beings rely on the ability to communicate as a means of transferring information. Whether we speak, listen, write notes or letters, email, or text message, the process of communicating thoughts, ideas, and feelings is something we find to be important but typically give little thought to.
At one time or another, we have all answered the call to civic duty by serving on a committee or advisory board. For some, the experience has been productive and energizing. For others, the experience has been painful, marked by long meetings that are unorganized and frustrating.
SDSU Extension asks that you voluntarily respond to the questions on this form. The information is requested only to make sure we are presenting our programs to a wide range of participants.
Volunteers and clubs are a valuable asset to SDSU Extension and by association are considered an arm of Extension. Any organization associated with SDSU Extension must conduct business with the same standards and attitudes as that of SDSU Extension.
Assurance statements document the commitment of organizations and volunteers to comply with civil rights policies and regulations. All clubs (including 4-H, Master Gardeners, etc.), volunteers, educational partners, cooperating organizations, and entities must sign assurance statements. Assurance statements must be renewed annually.
