"Extension has a long tradition of educating local officials. Tele-Institute programs provide local officials an opportunity to gain access to experts on current issues without leaving their home county," said Jeri Marxman, Extension Specialist in Public Affairs and Public Policy Education.
Presenters for the program include university faculty, representatives of state and federal agencies, and community leaders with experience in the issues and challenges faced by local officials.
The Tele-Institute program also provides the opportunity for county officials to earn Certified County Official credit. Each Tele-Institute qualifies for 2 hours of CCO credit.
