4-H Officer Training

Officer Training

Members of various Baltimore County 4-H Clubs gather to learn about how to be the best officer in their club.

On February 10, 2014, the University of Maryland Extension, Baltimore County 4-H held their Officer Training. During Officer Training, the newly elected officers in the 4-H clubs learn about their specific roles and duties for their clubs.

 “I learned about the real responsibilities of all the club officers and the purpose for having those officers,” said one 4-H officer. They also learned what actions are needed to run their 4-H clubs effectively. A 4-H officer mentioned, “I learned how a meeting should be properly lead including time management”. The 4-H Officer training is also a great way for the new officers to explore what is needed to work together to accomplish the clubs goals and mission. 4-H officers have the opportunity to meet other people from across the county as well.

During Officer Training, the new 4-H officers engaged in a “Crime Scene Investigation” activity to learn more about parliamentary procedures. In the end the group seemed very confident in their abilities. “I learned what it really means to be a leader and what types of characteristics a leader should have,” a 4-H officer stated. We have no doubt that our new 4-H officers will do a great job!
