Being an Advocate for Extension

Hillsborough County State Advisory Council member Erna Johnson at Legislative  Breakfast

BACKGROUND

Advisory leaders are extension's most effective advocates. Well informed and articulate advisory leaders can be very effective because they believe in the value of Extension.

Advocacy is an on-going process. Advocacy is about building relationships with elected officials, community leaders and other key leaders or stakeholders. Advocacy is also about educating elected officials about clientele needs and programs.
