The Journal of Extension -

For Institutional Delegates

As the Journal of Extension (JOE) institutional delegate for Extension professionals at your university, you are asked to begin or renew your commitment as the contact between your institution and the Extension Journal, Inc. (EJI) board of directors. Your efforts in communicating with your Extension colleagues the benefits and rewards of the Journal of Extension are much appreciated.

Email any questions or comments you have to the EJI president-elect. (See the JOE home page for a link to a list of the current board members; office holders are indicated in that list.) The president-elect acts as the EJI contact for JOE institutional delegates and provides leadership for the institutional delegates coordinating committee. The board members from each of the Extension directors’/administrators’ organizations (6) and the 1994 Extension administrators (1) serve as the coordinating committee. The coordinating committee’s responsibilities include

  • assisting Extension directors and administrators in identifying and recruiting JOE institutional delegates,
  • providing orientation and support for JOE institutional delegates, and
  • establishing effective communication with and among JOE institutional delegates.

To ensure effective communication between the board of directors and institutional delegates, the board will consider periodic teleconferences with representatives at a regional level if such communication is needed. The board thanks you for being an engaged liaison between your colleagues and the Journal of Extension.
