Leadership Development and the County Agricultural Extension Committee.
Turner, Gene W.
The role of the county Extension Leader in recommending members for the County Agricultural Extension Committee is discussed from the standpoint of principles and procedures involved in identifying, selecting, orienting, training, utilizing, recognizing, and evaluating leaders. Two techniques for identifying potential leaders are the reputational and the decision analysis techniques, and their modifications. The Extension Leader should recommend for the committee persons who will balance the board in terms of age, sex, interests, capabilities, and geographic location. Orientation should be on an individual basis and be brief and informal. It is believed that training of committee members is best accomplished by their participation in four meetings held annually. The Extension Staff must work at utilizing the county committee, and recognition of committee members should be part of the routine of committee work. A chart is provided that may be used by the Extension Leader to evaluate the effectiveness of the committee. It is concluded that a functioning and well-utilized committee can help in informing the general public about Extension's organization, purposes, and accomplishments. A brief bibliography is provided. (DB)
