Extension Council

What is the Extension Council?

The elected Extension Council is the governing body for the Cooperative Extension System. As part of Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, the Clinton County Extension Council works in partnership with local citizens, Iowa State University, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture to carry the land-grant mission beyond the Iowa State University campus in Ames. The Clinton County Extension Council is elected by the voters of Clinton County and serve four-year terms.

The County Agricultural Extension District Council is made up of nine members elected at large from the county. The Extension Council governs Iowa State University (ISU) Extension and Outreach in Clinton County. The council assumes responsibility for extension programs in the county, which includes establishing a budget, levying a tax, authorizing payment of expenses, and employing the ISU Extension and Outreach Clinton County staff.
