The Extension Connection

By Megan Vig

This week I share information from the North Dakota State Board of Agriculture Research and Education (SBARE). The State Board of Agricultural Research was established in 1997 to be responsible for budgeting and policymaking for the North Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station. In 1999, its responsibilities expanded to include the North Dakota State University Extension Service. The name also was changed to the State Board of Agricultural Research and Education then. SBARE is looking for someone to serve on the board in a position representing Barnes, Cass, Dickey, Griggs, LaMoure, Ransom, Richland, Sargent, Steele and Traill counties.

A major part of SBARE’s work is to gather proposals for research and Extension and prioritize the list. The prioritized list then goes to legislators for review. Qualifications to serve as a board member include the following. Knowledge of issues that affect citizens and industries in North Dakota. Local leadership experience. Willingness to serve on the SBARE, including preparing for and attending board meetings, completing assignments between meetings and some involvement with decision makers and other stakeholders. Willingness to communicate with other groups about how SBARE functions.

The four-year term begins July 1. The deadline to apply is February 23rd. An application form is available at the Griggs County Extension Service office. Lance Gulleson, Lisbon, serves on the board in this position currently and is eligible to be re-appointed. A committee will interview the candidates before sending a recommendation to the State Board of Higher Education for approval.

Next week, I will share information from our soil health presenters at the Griggs County Crop Improvement Meeting.
