Interested in joining the Sullivan County Advisory Council?

Our UNH Cooperative Extension Sullivan County office is seeking nominations from interested citizens who live or work in Sullivan County to be members of our Sullivan County Advisory Council.  The council includes 12 citizens, and a representative of the County Commissioners and County Delegation. These advisors assist Extension program staff to evaluate current programming, identify local educational and research needs, and to consider new programming across the county.  

Nominees will ideally have a good knowledge of local community and county issues and enjoy the opportunity to offer advice on methods of program delivery and implementation. They may or may not be familiar with Extension's programs but would value an opportunity to learn about our work in Food & Agriculture, Community & Economic Development, Youth & Family, and Natural Resources. Council members serve for two-year terms and meet 6-8 times a year from October through May.

If you are interested in joining our Sullivan County Advisory Council, please don't hesitate to contact Penelope Whitman, UNH Cooperative Extension Sullivan County Office Administrator.
