SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- The Southwest Region Extension Council will meet at 6:30 p.m. on June 25 inside the Springfield-Greene County Botanical Center, 2400 S. Scenic Ave., Springfield, Mo. The business meeting begins with a meal and business gets underway at 7 p.m.

Regional council members will be voting to approve or amend new bylaws and electing officers to serve the new region.

“As part of the meeting I’ll also provide a presentation describing the new program coverage plan and discuss filling positions in the region. The staffing plan was developed from input the council provided during the March meeting,” said Jay Chism, director of the Southwest Region.

Regional Extension Council meetings are open to the public; but due to limited space, advance registration is necessary by calling the regional extension office at (417) 865-0707.

The regional extension council for southwest Missouri is comprised of representatives from each of the 16 extension county councils in the Southwest Region. Each county council, whose members are elected by a public vote, selects its own representatives to the regional council where each county has one vote.

The purpose of regional extension councils is to be a forum through which member county councils cooperate in providing effective educational programs for the region.
