Officer Training

Officers are being elected for the 2022-2023 4-H year. Please send a list of the names and officer positions to the Extension Office. I would like to reach out and support the officers. I will need to know their contact information, so I can personally invite them to the county-wide officer training.
The officer training is being held Saturday, November 5 from 10 am-12 pm. Check-in will be between 9:30-10:00 am as the workshop will start promptly at 10 am. Youth and adults are encouraged to attend. RSVP by Friday, October 28, as we need an accurate count for lunch. RSVP HERE: https://go.wisc.edu/2022officertraining.
