Area-Wide Quarterly Meetings

Iowa State University Extension and Outreach is dividing the state into five areas for quarterly meeting purposes only. This is not a reorganization, and it is not another administrative layer. The boundaries may shift over time and after the Structured for Success committee’s work is complete.

  • Five areas have been proposed for meeting purposes, as shown on the map, below.
  • Each area will hold three, quarterly, all-staff, face-to-face meetings every state fiscal year.
  • Annual Conference will serve as the fourth quarterly meeting for everyone in ISU Extension and Outreach.
