4-H Leaders Council
The purpose of a County Council is to actively involve local volunteers in developing, conducting and evaluating the local 4-H program. The council is consists of people who work together to improve the quality for the youth, the adult volunteers and the Community Club Leaders.
In Monterey County, all clubs have an 80% attendance requirement to attend the council meetings. Any adult or youth may be a club representative for the council meeting (not just Community Leaders) Each club is allowed 2 votes on business matters.
Council meetings are held the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 7pm – excluding December and May.
Council Officers hold office for a 2 year term and include President, 1st Vice President, 2nd Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. Elections occur in May.
A bulk of the council’s business is accomplished through committee work provided by the clubs. The committee selection process takes place in the Spring and is to be finalized by July.
