How We Work


Updated 4 Yr Plan of Work:  2021 - 2025

After a 1.5 year process, CCE Staff and the Board of Directors is proud to present the 4 year Plan of Work for Cornell Cooperative Exension Wayne County.  Input was gleaned from focus groups, input from participants and feedback from our on line survey.  

This plan, from 2021 - 2025 will guide the program and activities of staff, volunteers and committees.  While this document provide guidance, actual programs and activities may change based on the immediate needs of the community - like our flex of activities during COVID and distance learning.

The Plan of Work is our working document incorporating community needs with activities and issues that are appropriate to CCE Wayne and all of the related extension teams that work with CCE: Lake Ontario Fruit Team, Cornell Vegetable Team, NWNY Dairy, Livestock and Field Crops Team, Finger Lakes Grape Program, Finger Lakes Eat Smart New York,  and our local 4-H, Ag, Master Gardner and Community Development programs.   Our current documents, adopted by the BOD in 2021 are listed below.
