Professional Development Opportunity for 4-H Staff and Faculty
--Submitted by Pam Watson and Joy Faerber
It is that time of year again that we need to collect membership dues for the Washington State 4-H Association (WS4-HA) and the National Association of Extension 4-H Agents (NAE4-HA).
December 15 is the cut off to have our state membership numbers into NAE4-HA – the more members we have, the more awards we are eligible to receive. Let’s make a goal of surpassing this past year’s member count!
Return your completed form and payment to Joy Faerber no later than December 4 (processing time on Joy’s end is necessary to get our state numbers into national by the 15th).
The membership renewal form can be found on the WS4-HA website at: http://4h.wsu.edu/staffdir/ws4ha/dues_form.pdf.
Citizenship Washington Focus
--Submitted by Pat BoyEs
Citizenship Washington Focus (CWF) 2010 is only 6 months away and registration is filling up quickly! There is still space available in the first three weeks of the program. Get together a group of five or more participants and go to www.4HCWF.org to learn more about registering. Official registration will close on Friday, November 20, 2010 but we will continue to accept registrations as long as space is available.
CWF is an experience of a lifetime where 4-Hers strengthen communication, leadership, and other citizenship skills on a national level; understand the importance of civic and social responsibilities as they relate to the development of better citizens and leaders; and exchange ideas, practice respect, and form friendships with youth from across the country. To learn more about CWF go to www.4HCWF.org, click on Media, and then on a video.
Contact Molly Young, Director of Youth Opportunities at 301-961-2812 or myoung@4HCenter.org for more information or to sign up your group for CWF 2010!
Just a Reminder!
When you have new Extension staff that will be working in some capacity with 4-H, please let Nancy in the State 4-H Office know. They will be added to mailing lists, added to the 4-H Talk list serve, sent a 4-H Welcome Packet, and be assigned a state 4-H staff person as a point of contact, as appropriate. 4-H News is sent via the 4-H Talk list serve each week. Archived copies of previous weeks “Tuesday 4-H News” are available on the 4-H web site: http://4h.wsu.edu/. Please send submissions by Friday of each week to Tiffany Boswell, State 4-H Office, firstname.lastname@example.org. Detailed event information and registrations forms can be found on the 4-H web site.
