eXtension Opens New Year with 38 Premium, 20 Basic Members


With a new membership model, eXtension begins 2015 serving 38 premium members and 20 basic members. The eXtension Foundation is currently electing a new board of directors that will replace the current eXtension Governing Committee. The deadline for voting by member institutions is January 20, 2015.

“We have an excellent slate of candidates for the Board of Directors. Each candidate prepared a ‘statement of intent’ describing why he or she wished to serve on the Board, “ said Elbert Dickey, eXtension Executive Director. “It’s exciting to know that these leaders are coming to the Board with strong support and interest.”

One of the first tasks the new Board of Directors will tackle is the hiring of a Chief Executive Officer. More information on that will be forthcoming as the Board moves into place and moves forward.
