Call for Nominations ‐ State Extension Advisory Council (SEAC)

Submitted by Jim Lindquist

State Extension Advisory Council (SEAC) members will be elected for the 2020‐2023 term by local unit board chairs in December this year. We are asking local unit board members to give serious consideration to this opportunity to serve K-State Research and Extension.

SEAC members serve as a consultative group to the Director for Extension regarding Kansas Extension programs. They meet twice a year, in February in Topeka and in August at locations that rotate around the state. Members also have the opportunity to participate once during their SEAC term in the Public Issues Leadership Development conference in Washington D.C., which includes a visit to our representatives on Capitol Hill.

Any Board Member Can Serve.

Each elected SEAC member shall have served a minimum of two years and currently be serving or within the last two years have served on a County Executive Board or a District Governing Body. We would like board members to self-nominate or nominate someone else for this important advisory position. Please have your nominations to your regional director no later than Friday, November 22, 2019. Make sure the candidate is willing to actively participate if elected.

With your nomination, please submit a digital picture of the candidate, and in less than 500 words, information the candidate chooses to share about the following:

• family/occupation/interests
• community involvement
• involvement in Extension programs
• Extension Board leadership experience
• goals envisioned for K‐State Research and Extension

This information will be shared with Boards on the SEAC website prior to the vote which will take place in mid December 2019.

Thank you for giving serious consideration to SEAC nominations.
