Cumberland County Extension Association (CCEA) Is Looking for Volunteers
Act Locally: Help Support Your County’s Extension Activities
The Cumberland County Extension Association has openings for people to serve on its board. Extension programs are run by University of Maine Cooperative Extension and are designed to bring practical, research-based information from the University of Maine into the county to meet local needs. County Extension Associations have a long history in Maine. The first one was established in 1915 to help direct the work of county “agents.” Since 1919, Maine’s County Extension Act has defined the role of these county associations in carrying out Extension work.
In partnership with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension staff, each County Extension Association Board member is aware of extension programming (breadth & depth) and helps to promote Extension programming in their respective circles, community and municipality.
The Cumberland County Extension Association meets once a month typically on the third Wednesday at 5:30pm via Zoom.
