Nov. 22, 2019 - email message to staff and councils

Today I am pleased to share Structured for Success: The Plan for Our Future.

  • Please watch this video message for a brief review of the goals, timeline, and questions to think about as your county considers the models.
  • Please review this document that details the three models and provides more specific information about the role of the regional director, expectations for county staff, cost estimates, and the added value for counties.

If you have questions about the plan or comments you’d like to share, please contact me directly at 515-294-6675 or, or contact Andrea Nelson at 515-294-0013 or

We are asking each extension council to commit to the model that best fits their county – not only today, but as we move forward together. Thank you.
