4-H Volunteerism Pre-Conference 
May 13, 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM

If you have statewide responsibilities with 4-H volunteerism please join us for this pre-session.  At the 2017 pre-conference, this group decided to propose a national 4-H Volunteerism Charter Group that has since been established.  We will spend time together learning what the group has been up to and giving them feedback for future work.  We will continue to identify priorities for future work in 4-H volunteerism and find room for everyone who wants to get involved  nationally.   Initial work will focus on volunteer recruitment and retention.  All ideas and input are welcome.  Come spend the day with us and help 4-H volunteerism move forward.  Breakfast and lunch are included in the fee.  

There is a $50 fee to attend a pre-conference session. Please select from ONE of the following sessions.
