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

Extension council meetings are the fourth Thursday of each month from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. All meetings, except the August barbeque, are held at the Webster County Extension Center, 800 S. Marshall St., Marshfield, MO, and are open to the public.
