Leadership Advisory Board Resources

Leadership Advisory Boards (LABs) are diverse groups of volunteers who are responsible for the overall Extension programs in their counties. They are provide the vision and long-term planning for Extension activities, serve as advocates for the county program, help interpret the program throughout the county, and help develop resources to support Extension programs.

History has proven that the most successful county programs and county Extension agents, are the ones in which their Leadership Advisory Board is active and engaged in directing the programming efforts of county Extension efforts.

The following resources all relate to working with Leadership Advisory Boards. Some of the resources illustrate how to interact with and manage LAB volunteers, while others are tools you may use to instruct LAB volunteers.
