The regional extension council for southwest Missouri is comprised of representatives from each of the 17 extension county councils in the Southwest Region. Each county council, whose members are elected by a public vote, selects its representatives to the regional council where each county has one vote.

The purpose of regional extension councils is to be a forum through which member county councils cooperate in providing effective educational programs for the region.
