County Extension Council

The effectiveness of a county’s Extension program depends on involvement of local citizens in program development. The County Extension Council System is designed to provide local stakeholder support for County Extension agents to plan, implement, evaluate, market, and support the local educational program. The system has two components:

  1. County Extension Council
  2. Program/Issue Committees

The County Extension Council is comprised of a core group of leaders who serve in a coordinating and leadership role. It is supported by Program/Issue Committees appointed to address specific program areas or issues.

If you are interested in serving on your County Extension Council or a Program/Issue Committee, contact your county extension office. For more information about how these groups work with county extension agents to improve the quality of life in Arkansas, click on our County Extension Council Guide.
