Annual Leader Training (charter requirement)

There are two options for annual leader training this year. The state has put together a series of 3 Zoom meetings to cover the 3 parts of a 4-H meeting. Each part of the series focuses on one of the 3 parts. The other option is a tri-county led training for leading engaging and interactive meetings. This training will be showing features of the Zoom pro account and leaders will have access to a county-wide Zoom pro account.  If you have any questions, please reach out to Tracy Keifenheim at tracy.keifenheim@wisc.edu
Friendly reminder - these clubs still need to sign up for one of the 3 training sessions being offered: Forest Hills, Rosendale, Taft 23, Welcome,  and FdL Horse and Pony Project. The leaders attending the training do not have to be the general or co-leaders of the club. Any adult volunteer affiliated with the club may attend one of the trainings via zoom to fulfill the charter requirement.
