County extension council

The county extension council, comprised of elected and appointed citizens, is a full partner with Missouri's land-grant universities to deliver high-quality education and research-based information that helps people solve real-world problems and take advantage of opportunities.

Council members:

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

Council resource toolbox

The council resource toolbox is designed to assist council members and officers to best carry out their office duties and serve the constituents that they represent.

Ripley County Extension Council meeting dates are on the first Tuesday of every month at 7 p.m. for the April - October months (daylight saving time) and change it to 6 pm. in the November - March months in the Ripley County Courthouse in the Jury Room. The public is invited. We recommend calling ahead to confirm time and location.
