Extension Board Member Orientation Module

Submitted by Jennifer R Wilson

Being an Extension Board member is an important job, and it can be a daunting task to learn the responsibilities of the job. The New Board Member Orientation module is designed to help new board members understand their role and learn more about the organization.

New and continuing board members are encouraged to review the module before they take office and attend their first board meeting. Board members can complete the module individually, or they can be led through the module by the local unit director, other agents, or current board members. In either situation, board members will also want to learn more about local unit operations, budgets, staffing plans, and agent action plans. The module can be found on the Board Leadership Website
