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 Cooper County Extension Council meets at 7 p.m. on the second Tuesday of March, May, July, September, November and December at the extension center. The public is invited. We recommend calling ahead to confirm time and location. The council's annual meeting is usually held on the second Tuesday of February at 6 p.m. More council information, minutes and resources is linked from the Cooper County Extension home page.
