Attention 4-H Administrative Leaders

New Year Meeting and Training

Most important will be an introduction and training for administrative leaders for the new web-based 4-H enrollment system. Administrative leaders will be able to do some functions on line with club enrollments and updates with this new system. Each 4-H Club needs to have a representative at this meeting.

This meeting will be held on September 22, 2010 starting at 7:00 p.m. at the Jackson County MSU Extension Office.

Also, budget topics, award process and changes in 4-H Award Trips will be addressed. Other topics will be added as we move closer to September. If Administrative Leaders have any topics they would like to address at this meeting let me know and I will add it to the agenda.

Award Packets
It is that time of year again for you and your leaders to nominate 4-H youth in your club for Jackson County 4-H Youth Achievement Awards. Administrative Leaders should be receiving award nomination summary packets in the mail in mid-July. This time frame will depend on where we are in the process of moving our enrollment database from the old Blue Ribbon system to the new ACCESS system, but that is our goal. Keep in mind that there are many youth in many clubs that deserve to be nominated for these awards and trips.

Please be sure to include recommendations from project leaders when making nominations. 4-H Member Award Summary forms can be obtained at the MSU Extension desk at the fair and on the MSU Extension 4-H website in July. Nomination forms and Member Award Summary forms are due to the Jackson County MSU Extension office by September 22, 2010 at the Administrative Leaders meeting
