Posted by Brian Allmer on December 19, 2012
The last weekend of January is host to the annual Colorado 4-H Leadership Development Conference held in Denver, CO January 25-28th. The conference is attended by 250 of the top 4-H leaders from Yuma to Larimer county. Attendees spend the weekend focusing on how to bring leadership focused initiatives to their communities by working togehter in think-tank sessions, community service, and meeting with their 4-H agents.
The event wraps up with a trip to the State Capitol on Monday January 28, 2013. 4-H Day at the Capitol allows 4-H youth leaders the chance to attend a “Meet and Greet” session in the morning with State Legislators and Officials, many of whom were 4-H members in the past. Afterward attendees will gather in the House and Senate to hear the 4-H Day at the Capitol Resolution start in the Senate with sponsor Senator Nancy Todd and move to the House with sponsor Representative Jerry Sonnenberg.
This unique opportunity gives those who go above and beyond in their community insight into how this process works and into the impact 4-H has on our local government.
