4-H Volunteer Training Opportunity

2008 North Central Region Volunteer Forum
Are you looking for a fun training and networking opportunity for 4-H volunteers and staff? The 2008 North Central Region Volunteer Forum is scheduled for November 6 – 8, in Columbus, Ohio. Every year, over 400 4-H volunteers, youth, and staff from twelve states gather to learn new and practical ideas to help their clubs through fun, hands on workshops. Iowa volunteers who attend Forum tell us they return re-energized and with new skills and ideas to help them have a successful club year.

Information about the Forum can be found at Click on Registration Booklet to check out all the details. Registration deadline is October 24. Register early to get your first choice of workshops!

Mail in registrations can be made by clicking on the Registration Booklet link, printing out the registration form and mailing with a check. Credit card payments are only accepted via the online registration system.

Scholarship money for the forum is available to those volunteers who attended either the 2007 or 2008 Iowa State Volunteer Retreat. There is also scholarship money available for 4-H volunteers from the Southeast Area through a memorial fund. Contact Chris Gleason about scholarship availability. (Chris Gleason, )
