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.

Extension council meetings are the fourth Thursday of each month from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. All meetings, except the August barbeque, are held at the Webster County Extension Center, 800 S. Marshall St., Marshfield, MO, and are open to the public.
