The Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service is dependent upon the broad-based participation of local citizens.  That involvement is accomplished through the Extension advisory council system.  The Extension Council is an organized body of volunteer leaders that counsels with Extension agents in the identification of local problems and issues, assists in program implementation, participates in determining program success, and communicates program accomplishments and funding needs to decision makers.
