Building Something New

The creation of a 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.
