Adult Leadership

Adult Leadersleader_opt

Adults are a very important part of 4-H – they are the foundation of our programming! We need parents, teachers, mentors, and volunteers just like you to help us continue a tradition of excellence in educating and helping our La Crosse County youth become well-rounded individuals prepared for the challenges they face in a growing world.

There are some amazing leaders out there. To recognize your amazing leader, see what opportunities there are for Volunteer Recognition.

Executive Committee

The La Crosse County 4-H Leaders Board consists of 4-H volunteer and parent leaders who are looking to help make smart decisions and contributions in the areas of budgeting, decision-making, and leadership for the 4-H Youth Development program. All important decisions in any project or program are brought to the Leaders Board, voted on, and implemented if passed.

The next Leaders Board meeting is scheduled for August 8th, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. at Hamilton Town Hall (N5105 Leonard St N, West Salem, WI).
An open forum will be held at 6:45 p.m. for anyone wishing to address the committee.
