As a grassroots organization, the success of the Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service relies on the active participation of Kentuckians in carrying out programs. The primary mechanism for securing input in the support and direction of local Cooperative Extension programs will be with the County Extension Council.

Each County Extension Agent will coordinate programming with a county program council/committee that will in turn coordinate overall efforts into the County Extension Council. The State Extension Advisory Council will allow stakeholders to review of program issues related to the state Plan of Work.
