Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) is a dynamic education system that extends Cornell University’s land-grant programs to citizens all across New York State. With a presence in every county and New York City, CCE puts research into practice by providing high value educational programs and university-backed resources that help solve real-life problems, transforming and improving New York families, farms, businesses and communities.

Stakeholder involvement is fundamental to all aspects of CCE’s work in New York State. Volunteer Boards of Directors provide governance for local and regional Cooperative Extension Associations, with oversight from Cornell. Members of local Boards are charged with representing the interests of all citizens who might benefit from the work of Extension in that area. Like other community-based organizations, CCE Board members have fiduciary responsibility for the Extension Association, and they:

  • Set organizational and program direction 
  • Engage in strategic planning 
  • Ensure necessary resources 
  • Employ and supervise an Executive Director 
  • Provide oversight 
  • Set local policy 

CCE Schuyler County has an active and involved Board of Directors and we are currently seeking persons with an interest in serving as a member of this important group. Eligibility requirements include being a Schuyler County resident age 18+ and the ability to attend Board meetings held the fourth Thursday of the month at 7:30 a.m. at the CCE Office in Montour Falls. Individuals who bring a diverse perspective and are supportive of diversity are strongly encouraged to apply. Yearly elections take place at our annual meeting, typically scheduled in December; there are occasionally mid-term replacements required and you may be approached to fill an open position.

Cornell Cooperative Extension offers equal program and employment opportunity.
