Merrimack County Advisory Council Meetings

Regular monthly meeting of the Merrimack County Advisory Council. Extension County Advisory Councils are made up of citizens who are elected volunteers. Among other responsibilities, they are to advise and assist UNH Cooperative Extension in program planning and implementation, and in procurement and administration of the county portion of the budget. Due to Covid-19, our Council Meetings have been held by Zoom. We will update as the pandemic unfolds.
