Extension Council

The Extension Council is authorized by the University of Illinois Board of Trustees, in accordance with state law, to be actively involved in the operation of University of Illinois Extension.  Extension Councils cooperate with Extension staff in planning, promoting, developing, implementing, evaluating, and financing an Extension program designed to meet the needs, interests, and resources of the local communities served. Representing communities throughout the unit, Council members act as ambassadors for Extension and help secure resources necessary for effective programming.

Thank you to our current Extension Council members!  We sincerely appreciate your willingness to give your time and resources to Illinois Extension.
