Please Complete the Structured for Success Online Survey

October 25, 2019

Oct. 22, 2019 -- email message to county staff and council members

The Structured for Success proposal was introduced on August 20, and since that time many of you have shared your thoughts and perspectives via area-wide meetings, virtual meetings, the virtual suggestion box, phone calls, email, letters, and one-on-one meetings. Thank you for your constructive feedback. The Structured for Success Committee and I have reviewed your comments and have incorporated appropriate suggestions within Model 3.

Now we invite and encourage you to complete this online survey. We want to better understand county extension councils' interest in Models 1, 2, or 3 and county staff interest in ISU medical and/or dental benefits. Your survey responses are nonbinding. We realize you need more information about model details and costs before you can make a firm decision. However, your nonbinding survey responses will help us plan next steps.

This survey should take approximately 10 minutes to complete. (If you choose, you may read this review copy of the survey before completing the survey online.) The survey can be completed by individual county extension council members and county staff members, or one survey can be completed on behalf of an entire county extension council or on behalf of all staff in a county extension office.

The direct link to the survey is Please complete the survey by 5 p.m., Friday, November 8. If you have questions, please contact me at

This message is being sent to multiple county list serves; if a county staff member did not receive this message please forward it to them at this time.  

Thank you for all you do every day to strengthen partnerships among councils, Iowa State University, and all Iowans.

Vice President for Extension and Outreach
