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 Howard County Extension Council meets at 7 p.m. on the third Thursday of every month. The public is invited and we recommend calling ahead to confirm time and location. Council meeting agendas and minutes are found on the "County council information" page.
