4-H Leaders’ Association

The Leaders’ Association helps to plan, implement and fundraise for 4-H programming at the County Level. All 4-H Leaders (youth and adult) who are enrolled in 4HOnline are voting members of the Association – they help to make decisions about 4-H at the county level including programming, policy, and growth of the program. All 4-H members, families and leaders are welcome to attend Association meetings to get information and provide input.

The Leaders’ Association elects a Board that meets monthly, this board reports to the entire Association at meetings held 3 times/year. At these All-County meetings, the Leaders’ Board (along with the UW-Extension office) will update all leaders on the work they’ve been doing on behalf of the Association and provide education, training and resources to support leaders in their efforts. The Association will vote on any major changes to the program, give input on new topics of discussion, and share concerns on behalf of the membership.
