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

The Cape Girardeau County Extension Council meets at 7:30 p.m. on the third Tuesday of each month at the extension center, as necessary business warrants. The public is invited. We recommend calling ahead to confirm time and location.
