The Southwest Region Extension Council will hold its regular quarterly meeting starting with a dinner at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 28 at the University of Missouri Research Center in Mt. Vernon.
The council will conduct regular business, elect officers, vote on a by-laws change and talk about upcoming MU Extension programs in southwest Missouri.
Regional Extension Council meetings are open to the public; but due to limited space, advance registration is necessary by calling the regional extension office at (417) 865-0707.
The regional extension council for southwest Missouri is comprised of representatives from each of the 16 extension county councils in the Southwest Region. Each county council, whose members are elected by a public vote, selects its own representatives to the regional council where each county has one vote.
The purpose of regional extension councils is to be a forum through which member county councils cooperate in providing effective educational programs for the region.
