Committee members serve three-year terms (Jan-Dec). Nine members serve on the Cass County Extension Committee (two county commissioners, a county auditor-treasurer and six county residents). The University of Minnesota Extension Service is an educational outreach of the University of Minnesota that ties Minnesota Counties to the resources of the University of Minnesota. 


Extension’s mission is, “Making a difference by connecting community needs and University resources to address critical issues in Minnesota/Cass County”. The main job of the Extension Committee is to identify educational programs' needs, provide input on the selection of Extension Educators, develop an annual county extension budget and promote the Extensions’ mission.
