Building Something New

The creation of a new California 4-H Management Board resulted from a two-year collaborative process that involved community partners and stakeholders from across the organization. The new Management Board structure replaces the Sectional and State 4-H Leaders’ Councils as of July 1, 2016. The new Management Board structure is intended to do several things:

  • Create new volunteer opportunities with specific focus areas. 
  • Expand the role of youth at the state and regional levels.
  • Open volunteer involvement through an application and selection process rather than by election. 
  • Set clear expectations - job descriptions and term length are publicly available. 
  • Empower committee leadership with a budget and the authority to fulfill their responsibilities. The Directors who lead committees are supported by 4-H staff.
  • Increase awareness, visibility, outreach, and participation in the program.
  • Improve the exchange of information, ideas, and access to tools.
  • Allow the 4-H Advisory Committees and State Management Board Directors to connect through periodic Management Board meetings.

Structure of the Management Board and Committees

At least 50% of the Directors and Committee members should be youth. Youth aged 16 years and up by July 1 are encouraged to apply for all positions. The Treasurer and Resource Development Director positions are only open to adults. 

The term of each adult volunteer is two years. The term of each youth member is one year. Directors may serve up to two terms consecutively. Directors need to apply for reappointment following each term.

In the case of vacancies, the Chair and/or Associate Director of 4-H Program and Policy may recruit members outside the open recruitment pool for candidates.
