4-H Club Meetings & Executive
Club meetings are held at the beginning of the month on a date that is set by the club early in the 4-H Year. These meetings provide an opportunity for those involved to discuss and decide on the events and activities in which the club will organize and/or take part in throughout the 4-H year.
NOTE: Attending the Club's monthly meetings is an important job in which members & volunteer leaders are expected to take part.
Monthly meetings are facilitated by the Club Coordinators (Overall Leaders) and the Club Executive. The executive is made up of members who are elected by the members to fill the following roles:
Learning how to properly run an effective club meeting is one of the many leadership skills members will gain as part of their 4-H experience.
4-H meetings follow Parliamentary Procedure
What is it?
Parliamentary Procedure allows for every person to have a say in how the club is run. It allows members to develop leadership skills and learn how to best work in groups where people may have different ideas about what to do. It also allows the club to stay organized and keep track of its goals.
Creating a Club Executive
To keep the club’s efforts and meetings organized, club members form an Executive Committee. These positions are elected by other club members. Some clubs may choose to rotate positions throughout the year, so that everyone has the opportunity to experience each role.
This allows you to take on a leadership role in your club, and gain experience in leading meetings, being responsible for the club’s funds, or taking notes and keeping everything organized!
