The Joint Council of Extension Professionals is an umbrella organization of seven member organizations whose mission is to elevate Extension's national reputation as an organization of excellence and synergistically leverage the strengths of member associations to foster leadership, collaboration, professional development, scholarly activity, and strategic partnerships, as well as advocate for the profession.

  • Ohio JCEP membership is open to Ohio State University Extension and Central State University Extension employees who have an administrative and professional (A&P) or faculty appointment.
  • The Ohio Joint Council of Extension Professionals (Ohio JCEP) was formed in late 2012, when the membership of Ohio's Alpha Eta Chapter of Epsilon Sigma Phi (ESP) and the Ohio Association of Extension Professionals (OAEP) voted to merge.
  • The work of Ohio JCEP is primarily carried out by the Ohio JCEP board of directors and several committees.
