The Story County Extension Council elected four officers during the organizational meeting January 14. The nine-member council annually elects officers to comply with Iowa law.
Doug Sampson, Nevada, is the newly-elected chairperson. Sampson 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. Leonard Foley, Huxley, was elected vice chairperson. Stacie Link, Cambridge, was re-elected secretary. The council re-elected Robert Krause to the treasurer position. The council is the county governing body of Iowa State University Extension and Outreach; it hires county staff, manages the county extension budget and determines 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.
