Welcome New State Advisory Board Members

| No Comments

Thumbnail image for IMG_8072.JPGThe University of Minnesota Extension Master Gardener State Advisory Board welcomed five new board members on June 13 at the first quarterly meeting of the 2014-2015 program year. Board members represent Extension Master Gardener volunteers in each of the five regions of University of Minnesota Extension.


The State Advisory Board provides input and recommendations to the state Extension Master Gardener staff about program visions, strategies and governing policies. Board members act as ambassadors of the statewide program. In 2014-2015 board members intend to increase communications and connections with local Extension Master Gardener groups within each member's region.


The current board is comprised of fourteen Extension Master Gardener volunteers, one county program coordinator, and four state staff representatives.
