Extension Council Officers elected

The Marion County Extension Council elected four officers during the organizational meeting January 9, 2014. The nine-member council annually elects officers to comply with Iowa law.

Mark Drost, of Tracy, is the newly-elected chairperson. Mark will preside at all meetings of the extension council, and will have authority to call special meetings and carry out duties performed and exercised by a chairperson of a board of directors of a corporation. Randy Thill, of Pleasantville, was elected vice chairperson.

Rosemary Worrall, of Melcher, was elected secretary; and has the responsibility of keeping the minutes of all extension council meetings and signing required papers for the council.

The council elected Cindi Dale, of Knoxville, to the treasurer position. The treasurer receives, deposits, has charge of all of the funds of the extension council, and pays and disburses funds. The treasurer ensures an accurate record of receipts and disbursements and submits reports to the extension council.

The council is the county governing body of Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. The council hires county staff, manages the county extension budget of approximately $340,000, and helps determine programming.

In partnership with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, the council provides educational opportunities that bring university resources to the needs of the county and region.
