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.
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 4-H Leaders Board will be holding elections this year for the following positions: Vice President, Treasurer, West Salem Rep, Holmen-Mindoro Rep and possibly an At-Large Rep. All 4-H adult volunteers and older 4-H youth are eligible to serve! Voting for positions will take place at the November meeting by ballot and terms will begin in January of 2020. Contact the Extension office or a current board member if you are interested in serving!
The next Leaders Board meeting is scheduled for October 10th, 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.
