Iowa Association of County Extension Councils celebrates 10 years

Iowa Association of County Extension Councils

The Iowa Association of County Extension Councils (IACEC) is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2008. Ten years ago and continuing today, statewide communication is the focus of this organization that links and represents ISU Extension county councils throughout the state.

“We hoped to open up communication among counties and work together to share ideas and resources,” said Neil Lansing, initial committee member and current Fayette County extension council member. “The partnership of IACEC and administration has been a key aspect leading to open communication and cooperation.”

“It gave councils a voice,” said John Bossard, initial board member and current Greene County extension council member. “It is important that the vision of the group be in line with the current needs of councils.”
