Council resource toolbox

As you are an elected or appointed council member and dedicated advocate for MU Extension, we want to give you the most accurate and timely information possible. We have designed a resource "toolbox" to have at your disposal the educational information, guidelines, by-laws and tools you need to be an advocate for and be informed about extension.

The council resource toolbox is designed to assist council members and officers to best carry out your office duties and serve the constituents that you represent. Access the council resource toolbox here.

In all 114 Missouri counties, an MU county extension council, of elected and appointed citizens, guides local educational programming. County council members are partners in the entire educational process, from needs assessment through program implementation and evaluation of outcomes.

Council members

  • Work with regional specialists to provide the county educational program,
  • Manage finances of local extension operations,
  • Provide personnel to carry out extension activities, and
  • Elect and organize the local extension council.
