2016-2017 Council Positions and Committees
Placer County 4-H Council is led by four adult volunteers in the position of Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer, and Secretary. These positions were voted upon for the 2016-2017 4-H year at the May Council meeting. In order to be more transparent about the roles of each of these officers, a position description has been provided. Volunteers submit a complete application and by signing the position description, they agree to fulfill the duties listed.
In addition to the traditional roles, this year there will be additional opportunity for youth to participate on council as a Youth Officer. The position description and application are available. Applications will be due to the 4-H office by 5:00pm on September 15th. A selection committee made up of adult volunteers not related to the applicants will review the applications, and youth will be recommended for the position at the September 28th Council meeting held at the Loomis Veterans Hall beginning at 7:00pm.
Placer County 4-H Council also has several committees that youth and adult volunteers are welcome to join. Descriptions of each of the committees are also available for those interested in participating for the coming 2016-2017 4-H year. 4-H’ers, volunteers, and parents are welcome to join us on the 4th Wednesday of each month for Placer County 4-H Council meetings. Please submit a Committee Interest Form by September 1st so we can communicate specifically about each committee with interested youth and adults.
