The Advisory Leadership Council System is used by the LSU AgCenter as one method of responding to the needs of the people of Louisiana. Advisory Leadership Councils provide a mechanism for stakeholder involvement in assuring that education, outreach, and research programs conducted by the LSU AgCenter are in keeping with the mission, vision, and goals of the LSU AgCenter and that they are effective in meeting the needs of clientele.
Advisory Leadership Councils are made up of members of the community who advise LSU AgCenter faculty on program direction for a more effective and efficient delivery of services. Advisory Leadership Councils have been formed for each LSU AgCenter program area.
An overall parish Advisory Leadership Council also meets annually with representatives from each program area coming together to guide the parish program as a whole. If you would like to serve on an Advisory Leadership Council in Ouachita Parish for Agriculture & Natural Resources, Family & Consumer Sciences, or 4-H Youth Development, please contact the Ouachita Parish Extension office of the LSU AgCenter at 318-323-2251.
