On Friday, August 4th, the Northwest Extension Region and the Daviess County Extension Center will be hosting several University of Missouri Extension administrators for a meeting to discuss the future of MU Extension and Engagement, and hear from stakeholders on what they would like see from Extension.

The meeting will begin at 1:00 PM at the Jamesport Fire and Rescue Building, 406 S. Allen Lane, near downtown Jamesport, Missouri. Dr. Stewart will be sharing what we have learned about Missouri from several Community Conversations meetings, various reviews, and quantitative data and to share/seek input on our future MU Extension and Engagement direction.

This will be a time to visit and hold a conversation with our top administrators, Extension stakeholders, partners and others regarding our shared future in Missouri, vetting and affirming “who we are” as Extension and Engagement. 

Dr. Stewart would like to have a conversation with the citizens and community leaders of Missouri as we plan our future. He and our other administrators truly value your input. This will be an excellent opportunity for you to hear the long-term plans for Extension and discuss them with our top Extension administrators.
