4-H Leader’s Council
4-H Clubs are lead by caring adults who generously volunteer their time, efforts, and expertise. A Leader’s Council allows these volunteers to meet and interact regularly both with other club leaders in their area and 4-H staff. The ultimate goal of Leader’s Council is to provide structure, training, and opportunities to club leaders to help them meet the educational needs of their enrolled youth and to provide direction for the 4-H program in their county.
At least one adult leader from each club should plan to attend each Leader’s Council meeting. Community members, 4-H youth, parents, and other volunteers are welcome to attend as well. In addition to the goals stated above, Leader’s Council Meetings are a great time for professional development, networking, and resource sharing.

Leader’s Council Executive Board
The Leader’s Council follows a similar structure of the 4-H club with volunteers taking on leadership roles within the council just as youth take on leadership roles with their club. The Council has 4 elected positions and each position is a two-year term, with the roles of president and secretary turning over in even number years and vice president and treasurer turning over in odd number years.
The current executive board is made up of the following leaders:
- President: Megan Lambert
- Vice President: Teazzua Seekins
- Treasurer: Jennifer Connolly
- Secretary: Keely Crandall
