1959
"I like 4-H'ers because they are dedicated to excellence; they want to do things better... Next thing I like about them is their examples to other young people. they lead us to greater dedication to our country. They are, by their work, indeed, making this country a better one... As long as we have young people of these characteristics, devoted with their hearts and their heads and their hands and their health to doing these things, America cannot be anything but successful." President Dwight D. Eisenhower, at the 1959 dedication of the National 4-H Center.

We can be part of the solution for a better future . . .

Meeting Minutes Reminders
Meeting minutes are important! Not just in 4-H but in any organization! While it isn’t necessary or even advisable to capture every detail or every comment made, there ARE some key things to include!
Such as . . .
  • A list of members and guests who were there or refer to a separate attendance sheet.
  • Decisions made (motions, votes, etc.)
    • Especially be sure to include names of officers elected or chairpersons selected! Even if the role is being held by the same person who handled it previously.
    • Especially record details about financial decisions – how much to or from who and when. In addition, refer to official treasurers and/or budget report.
    • If there are action steps for an event or project – what will be or was completed by whom and when.
    • Mention discussion held or voting outcome (passed, failed, tabled) and signing dates of official documents such as By Laws, Policies, etc.
  • If reference or corrections are made to previous meeting minutes, identify the date of that meeting.
  • Include the date, time, and location of next meeting if decided.
