Board of Directors (BOD)

The Leaders’ Association elects a Board that meets monthly, this board reports to the entire Association at meetings held 3 times/year (January, April & August). At these All-County meetings, the Leaders’ Board (along with the 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. All 4-H members, families and leaders are welcome to attend Association meetings to get information and provide input.

The Board of Directors oversee the business of the 4-H Leaders’ Association. Adult Directors (min of 10, max of 12) serve a 3 year term—they can be re-elected for a 2nd term but then must leave the board for at least 1 year. Youth Directors (min of 2, max of 4) serve a one year term. Elections for open Director positions are held annually; all Association members are eligible to vote. Officers of the board are elected annually by the Board of Directors.

The Treasurer of the Association is a volunteer who is not elected and not a voting member of the board. The treasurer manages the finances of the Association; the Finance Committee manages the Association’s budget (making recommendations on spending and fundraising to the Association).
