Cedar County MU Extension Council will accept nominations for the 2018 public election of county extension council members until Dec. 4. This invitation is to any Cedar County resident interested in joining the council.

University of Missouri Extension offers educational programs in categories such as agriculture, home economics, business and industry, community development, youth development (4-H), various continuing education courses, seminars and workshops.

Cedar County MU Extension Council is made up of elected (and appointed) members who represent the broad educational needs and backgrounds of people in the county. Council candidates must be at least 18 years old and reside in the district they represent. This year we will be filling three positions in the North (Box, Cedar, and Washington townships) and three positions in the South (Benton, Linn, Jefferson and Madison townships) districts of the county. These positions are two-year terms.

Cedar County MU Extension Council member nominations will be reviewed at the Dec. 4 council meeting so if you are interested please contact the extension office as soon as possible. Cedar County holds its council elections the third week of January.

If you are interested in being a candidate or have questions about being a council member, contact the Cedar County MU Extension Center at 417/276 -3313 or by email at cedarco@missouri.edu.
