Historically, advisory committee memberships have included farmers, ranchers, homemakers, and 4-H leaders. This type of membership is still very important since these program areas are central to Extension’s mission; however, outside interests bring a balance of thinking and ‘stretches’ program considerations beyond the traditional. In addition to farmers, ranchers, homemakers and 4-H leaders, individuals from a variety of occupations with the following interests will be considered for membership on the overall advisory committee.
Members of the Council should have expertise or strong interest in the following:
- Positive Youth Development and 4-H
- Horticulture, Natural Resources, and Small Acreage Management
- Community and Demonstration Gardening
- Community engagement and partnership development
- Family health and wellness including behavioral health
Program growth and inclusion of under-represented audiences
- Community outreach and program marketing
- Education or business relevant to extension programming
Inclusion of outside interests not only brings a broader program opportunity to Extension but gives Extension greater visibility throughout the county or area.
