Extension Master Gardener National Committee

National eXtension Master Gardener groupThe Extension Master Gardener National Committee (EMGNC) provides a national focus and contact point for the nationwide Extension Master Gardener (EMG) program and the various state efforts in extension consumer horticulture.

The EMGNC facilitates inclusion of county and state gardening information in eXtension; provides a channel for contacting, funding, and training EMGs to be front line detectors and information providers on national, critical issues related to home yards and landscapes; facilitates national collaboration to avoid redundancy in development of educational materials, and expedites collaboration with federal agencies, funders and professional organizations for input and funding for national issues and priorities.

The EMGNC is comprised of EMG state coordinators elected to represent five geographical Cooperative Extension regions (Northeast, North Central, Northwest, Southwest, South Central and Southeast) and the directors of nationwide projects. Northeast, Southwest and Southeast regions are elected in even years; North Central, Northwest and South Central are elected in odd years. Each elected representative can serve up to two consecutive two year terms.
