Nominations are being accepted for the January election of the Texas County University of Missouri Extension Council members, according to Council Chairperson Kathy Sirdoreus.
Council members are elected or appointed to two-year terms and may not serve more than two consecutive terms. Nominees must be at least 18 years old and reside in the district from which they are selected. Nominations must be made before Dec. 13.
“We want nominees who are interested in education and the progress of our community,” Sirdoreus said. “The resources of the University of Missouri System and Lincoln University are available to us. We need active council members to help plan educational programs and to work with University of Missouri Extension specialists.”
Nominations may be made through Sirdoreus or the county extension center. Nominees will be contacted to secure their permission to place their names on the January ballot.
MU Extension offers educational programs in categories such as agriculture, home economics, business and industry, community development, youth development (4-H) and various continuing education courses, seminars and workshops.
