Welcome to the Frontier Extension District #11
K-State Research and Extension Website
The Frontier Extension District is a branch of K-State Research and Extension. Extension programs present educational information related to agriculture and natural resources, family and consumer sciences, 4-H youth development, and community development.
We serve the people of Anderson, Franklin, and Osage Counties, and we have offices located in Garnett, Ottawa, and Lyndon.
Our philosophy is to help people help themselves by taking university knowledge to where people live, work, and play. We work at being responsive to the needs of the people by focusing our resources on providing quality information, education, and problem-solving programs for real concern. The information we provide is researched based and unbiased.
What's New in the District
Community Board Leadership Series
You're serving on a board. Now what? K-State Research and Extension is sponsoring the Board Leadership Series. This series provides an opportunity to give community-based boards - elected, appointed, or recognized by local units of government - affordable training necessary to be most effective and efficient with their responsibilities. The series will be each Tuesday evening in February from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. These sessions will be conducted through a "high tech/high touch" approach at KSRE offices across the state for interactive participation. Session topics include:
- Roles & Responsibilities of Board Members/Effective Meetings
- Fiscal Responsibilities, Fundraising, and Legal & Ethical Issues
- Understanding Fellow Board Members/Conflict Resolution
- Strategic Planning
You can visit our Community Development webpage to register for the sessions. For session and registration information, contact Fran Richmond at 785-828-4438 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Each registration buys a seat which can be rotated by participants. The deadline to register is January 10, 2019.
