The local Extension Council is made up of volunteers representing our four counties. Nominees are identified locally and include a diverse group of individuals who respect the Extension organization and who are interested in its programs in their communities. The Dean of the College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Services reviews the nominations and makes the appointments.

The University of Illinois Board of Trustees, in accordance with state law, authorizes the local council to be actively involved in the operation of Extension. Extension Council serve in an advisory role cooperating 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.
