Cooperative Extension Directors and Administrators across the country were asked to review the 2007 Strategic Opportunities report and to offer additional suggestions for opportunities and priorities. These suggested additions and the 2007 report were used to create a survey administered in the summer of 2008. This report presents the compiled results of the final survey of the Cooperative Extension Section (CES) Directors and Administrators. It presents the CES's view of strategic opportunities for Cooperative Extension in 2009 and beyond. The respondents to the survey ranked the Strategic Opportunities in the order presented in this report. Following each of the seven opportunities are listed one or more strategic priorities as indicated by the respondents. The rank order of the Strategic Opportunities and the individual priorities differ somewhat from the previous report.
