News from NC Cooperative Extension, Currituck
Change is Coming...

“Can I pay by credit card?” That is a question we frequently hear at N.C. Cooperative Extension in Currituck County and, until now, the answer has been “no.” All of that is about to change. Our office is pilot testing the Eventbrite system for online course registrations. 

Many of you are familiar with Eventbrite for things like community events, races, and concert tickets. You will now be able to register for select Extension events advertised through the Eventbrite system and pay via credit card. Our hope is that this new system will make it easier for you, our clients, to register and pay for the courses you’d like to attend. It will also make communications simpler with automated reminders so you’ll never miss a class you’ve registered for!

Classes will still be advertised through our traditional channels online and in local news publications. You will now also be able to follow us on Eventbrite at the following link:  http://go.ncsu.edu/currituckeventbrite .
