Extension council members and other colleagues:
University of Missouri Extension invites you to attend the Council to Campus event June 19 and 20 on the university campus. For the past ten years, this event has connected county council members with the research and program development of the University of Missouri’s flagship campus. This year’s event Theme: It’s More Than Your Grandparents Extension is to help us all know that we are working to meet the needs for the next 100 years of MU Extension.
This event is an opportunity for the University of Missouri, MU Extension and the county extension councils to forge new partnerships. We hope county and regional council members will take this opportunity to learn more about what we do and how we work to implement extension programs across the state.
We have worked to provide programs that ensure research conducted by our faculty and staff continues to address your community’s needs on a local level. At this year’s event, you will get a closer look at the research and programs conducted on campus. Tours of the Bradford Farm, Conservation Hall, Wildlife preservation, and a chance for some to take the Nuclear Reactor Tour are a great chance to see and hear why MU and MU Extension stands above the rest.
Our luncheon speaker, Missouri Farm Bureau, has been our partner for Over 100 Years. Cooperative Extension values that partnership along with their members serve on councils at the local level. Having both celebrated 100 years in 2014, hear how the Missouri Farm Bureau has partnered with MU Extension and been a leader in the development of Cooperative Extension. Learn why that partnership must strengthen to meet farming demands in the next 100 years.
We will discuss a broad array of issues facing extension across the state, such as regional realignment, staff planning, local program presence, the role played by regional councils, and how to support local programming and grow a local presence.
There will be an administrative update and to discuss the goals and visions of MU Extension. Time will also be set aside for pictures and to meet and network with council members from across the state. We will provide a press release so you can share news of the event with local media in your county.
We look forward to seeing you at the Council to Campus event in June 19-20, to give you a closer look at MU Extension’s efforts to improve the lives of Missourians across the state. Electronic registration for this event is available through this website or through a link from the MU Extension Councils page.
