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 promoting and financing an Extension program designed to meet the needs, interests, and resources of the local communities served.

Extension Council Members

Members of Extension Councils contribute immeasurably to the effectiveness of University of Illinois Extension by helping identify local needs, develop/implement programs, and secure resources for projects that address our state's most pressing issues. 

If you are interested in bringing your unique perspective to the Madison-Monroe-St. Clair Extension Council, please contact William Catalano, County Director, at 618-344-4230. University of Illinois Extension is dedicated to the most fundamental principles of academic freedom, equality of opportunity, and human dignity. All decisions involving clientele and employees are based on individual merit and are free from invidious discrimination in all its forms.
