County program director resources

County program directors provide a key function for University of Missouri Extension. They provide leadership and act as a liaison between the local county extension council, University administration and oftentimes with the county commissioners. They provide continuity from year to year as the council changes membership and lead in the overall council development process. The results of their efforts can be seen in the continued positive relationships that are maintained with the community and county commissioners, as well as with other funders and stakeholders. Their leadership in forming and maintaining a local connection is critical to the success of extension programming efforts.
