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 Jackson County Extension Council normally meets at 7 p.m. on the fourth Thursday of every month, alternating between the Blue Springs and the Kansas City locations.
