 County Council Officer Election

Currently serving as a club representative on the 4-H County Council
Maintaining an attendance of 70% or above
Honest, sincere, friendly, responsible
Knowledge able of 4-H program opportunities in Tarrant County
Passing all academic courses
Interested in serving in an officer role???

The Tarrant County 4-H Council is comprised of youth representatives of clubs located throughout the county.  The County Council Officers (Executive Board) work with the Council to conduct meetings and activities which are supportive of the club experience.     Its main area of focus is to apply leadership skills to benefit the youth of the county (including both 4-H members and non-4-H members).   The success of the Council depends on the entire team of officers and representatives.

In order to provide an opportunity for youth to serve in officer positions, an election of officers is conducted at the May meeting of each year.   Officers are elected from the current active membership.  This means that the council member is serving as an elected/appointed club representative who is actively attending the council meetings.   The regular Council meetings are conducted during the months of August, September, October, November, January, February, March, April, and May.

It is an honor to serve as an officer; but like all honors, it carries certain responsibilities.  It is important that each officer know his/her responsibilities and fulfill them to the best of his/her ability.
