FAQ for New Members
When do we meet?
The second Monday of every other month from 6:30 – 8:00 pm by Zoom. If the second Monday is a holiday, then we meet on the third Monday.
How do I learn or hear more about what the Extension staff does?
At least one of the Extension educators or professionals is present at each meeting. They give oral or written monthly reports about current and upcoming programs and issues. Other staff are invited to discuss their educational programs.
How many members make up the board?
The Executive Committee is composed of up to 10 members elected (See Article V, Section 1).
What is the term length for board members?
Members are elected for a period of three (3) years. Members may serve no more than two (2) consecutive full terms but may be re-elected after a lapse of one year.
What’s the difference between a program committee and a standing committee?
Program committees work with the Extension educators to determine program needs and priorities annually. Standing committees meet to work in three areas: nomination and orientation; administrative issues (scholarship, budget, publicity); and annual meeting and volunteer recognition.
If I sign up for a committee, am I a member of this committee “for life” or until my term ends?
No, in fact we encourage committee members to serve on different committees each year if appropriate. Members in the past have mentioned that when they rotated from one committee to another they learned more about the organization, its operation and other committee and staff members. They felt more informed and well-rounded and able to speak with more clarity about Cooperative Extension.
