The Cumberland County Extension Association has openings for people to serve on their board. Extension programs are run by University of Maine Cooperative Extension and are designed to bring practical, research-based information from the University of Maine into the county to meet local needs.
County Extension Associations have a long history in Maine. The first one was established in 1915 to help direct the work of county “agents.” Since 1919, Maine’s County Extension Act has defined the role of these county associations in carrying out Extension work.
In partnership with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension staff, each County Extension Association coordinates development of a plan of work, helps hire staff, and oversees the county budget appropriations that support educational Extension programs for county residents.

For more than 100 years, University of Maine Cooperative Extension has supported UMaine’s land-grant public education role by conducting community-driven, research-based programs in every Maine county.
