5 Take Time for a Club Checkup Good 4-H club meetings are the result of: Efficient leadership. Youths and adults should be partners in leading the 4-H club meeting. Adults coach and guide youths of all ages to become leaders. Adequate facilities and space arrangements. Well-planned educational programs. Programs should provide opportunities for community service, learning by doing, and youth leadership. Active and involved members. Use this questionnaire for your club s annual checkup. It will help you measure the strong and weak points of your club meetings. After you determine the weak points, take steps to improve them. Leadership Always Sometimes Never 1.

9 So You Are a 4-H Club Officer Every successful 4-H club has a good team of officers. A club s officer team fosters teamwork and cooperation among members through leadership and organization. Each officer has an important job to help make the 4-H club a success and each member successful. The So You Are a Club Officer series outlines the duties and responsibilities of officers both as a team and as individual officer holders. The size of a club determines the number of officers needed. Clubs work best with a minimum of a president, vice president, secretary, treasurer and recreation leader. The recreation leader position may be divided into two positions: a song leader and game leader. Smaller clubs may find it necessary to combine offices, but be cautious not to burden any one officer with too many duties. It is an honor to be a 4-H club officer and like all honors, it carries responsibilities. The success of a 4-H club depends on the officer s ability to work with all other club members. Officers work together and use parliamentary procedure to guide members through organized meetings. Each officer has general responsibilities to the group and specific duties of his or her elected office. An officer is to: Represent a large and respected organization 4-H club officers represent their local clubs and the 4-H program throughout the state. Officers skills and abilities, standards and ideals, and even their smiles represent other 4-H members. This responsibility exists at all times, not just at 4 H meetings. Remember, people who are not familiar with 4-H may judge it by its officers! Help plan and carry out club activities 4-H members and officers plan and carry out activities. Officers must take initiative to work closely with leaders to plan and carry out club activities. Your leader is your adviser. Help every member find a place in the club A 4-H club does well and grows when every member participates. Officers need to make sure every member has a chance to contribute. Set standards Officers can set high standards by performing their duties well. Officers, together with club leaders, should set club goals at the beginning of the year. It is important to post the club s goals and then report on the progress and accomplishments throughout the year. Every officer should know the club goals of 4-H and be able to talk with others about the 4-H program. The success of a 4-H club depends on an officer s ability to work with all other club members. Leaders don t create followers, they create more leaders. Tom Peters So You Are a 4-H Club Officer 5
10 My grandfather once told me that there were two kinds of people: those who do the work and those who take the credit. He told me to try to be in the first group; there was much less competition. Indira Gandhi ( ) In addition to performing the specific duties of each office, 4-H club officers are to: Recruit new members and organize the club. Plan the annual program, month by month. Arrange for a meeting place and care for it properly. Conduct and participate in the meetings. Keep club records and share them with club leaders and county extension as required. Be enthusiastic and interested in the club. Help every member find a place in the club and an opportunity to participate. Maintain good relationships with all members and other groups. Keep in contact with the local University of Missouri Extension center. Attend 4-H officers training. Keep the community informed about the club. Serve on committees. Members also have a responsibility to the club and its officers. Unless members and officers work together, the club will not be an effective group. Members need to respect their officers and support them in becoming strong leaders. A 4-H club needs officers who: Serve their club well and plan to make the club a success. Help members decide what the club will do. Give everyone a chance to participate. Work with all club officers, committees and leaders. Help plan programs that give every member each a chance to participate. Share leadership with others and give everyone a chance to grow as leaders. Are dependable and get things finished on time. Represent the club in the community and county. Checklist for officers Officers should have personal goals that will help them become good leaders. Use the following checklist to help evaluate your personal progress as an officer. I understand and willingly accept the duties and responsibilities of my office. I am willing to improve myself in order to be a better officer. I am friendly to all members of the club and include everyone in club meetings and activities. I enjoy doing more than just what is required of me. I give credit to others for work well done. I am on time to meetings. 6 University of Missouri 4-H Center for Youth Development
11 My appearance inspires confidence and respect. I am kind, tactful and courteous. I use please and thank you when I should. I ask for suggestions. I show appreciation to leaders and parents for their time, effort and devotion to the club. Checklist for a club meeting Use the following checklist to evaluate several club meetings to determine if improvements can be made. Meeting was well planned. Each officer did his or her job well. Meeting started and ended on time. Business was completed. Discussion and decision-making didn t take too much time. Meeting place was comfortable. Members participated in discussion. Program was interesting. Recreation was included and well planned. My notes: Election of officers First, nominations are in order! There are three ways to nominate members for an office. 1. During a meeting, present members may nominate candidates. When nominating a candidate, it is important to explain why the nominee would make a good officer. The candidate then accepts or declines the nomination. Members are encouraged to serve as an officer at some point during their 4-H club experience. This process is known as nomination from the floor. 2. Before an election, an appointed nominating committee can suggest a slate of candidates for each office. During a 4-H club meeting, the nominating committee submits the slate to present members, and they have the opportunity to make additional nominations for various offices. 3. A list of candidates can be created through informal ballot. Members may nominate candidates by writing their names on paper, which the secretary collects. The secretary makes a list of the candidates for each office. If an informal ballot is used, the secretary will need enough paper and pencils for everyone. An informal ballot is a more business-like way to conduct elections. Once the candidates are nominated, the president announces their names and members vote for their respective officers. Members may vote by raising their right hand, standing or using a ballot. If voting is done by hand raising or standing, the candidates usually leave the room during the vote for their office. During each vote, members should take time to discuss which candidate they think is best and why. Discussion will help the group choose the most qualified officers. When the vote has been counted, the president announces the name of the person elected. A ceremony for installation of officers is described in LG800, Installation of Officers. So You Are a 4-H Club Officer 7
12 Specific duties for each officer In addition to general responsibilities, each officer has specific duties. Tasks within a club can be shared many different ways. If your club decides on different responsibilities for any office, be sure it is clear to all the officers and members. Officers should attend officer training when it is held in the county. For a more detailed description of duties, see the So You Are a Club Officer chapters about specific offices: president, vice president, secretary, treasurer, recreation leader, historian, photographer and reporter. President The president has specific responsibilities to help lead the 4-H club to success. The major duties of the president include: Prepare an agenda prior to the meeting. A typical agenda is outlined in MU Extension publication Y612, Missouri 4-H Club Program Book. Call the meeting to order and preside at the business meeting. Use parliamentary procedure to guide members in a smoothly run meeting. Appoint committees, unless otherwise decided by club action. Guide meetings in a courteous, tactful way. Avoid talking too much. The meeting belongs to the members. The president is only the pilot and should avoid giving an opinion on subjects under discussion. Delegate responsibilities among members so that everyone has a job in the club at one time or another. Arrange to have another person, usually the vice president, run the meeting and inform the club leader if you cannot attend. Discuss the agenda and other club business with the secretary, club leaders and other officers before the regular meeting. Arrange for minutes to be taken when the secretary is absent. Show courtesy to guests and introduce them to the club at the beginning of the meeting. Check on the progress of each committee and ask for a report from the chairperson frequently. It is very important that committee chairs inform the club members about upcoming events. Check with officers about program plans and activities individually or at officer meetings. Vice president The vice president also has duties that are essential to a successful club. The major duties of the vice president include: Serve as chairperson of the program planning committee. Be familiar with the president s duties in case the president is absent. When asked, represent the club at local 4-H events, civic meetings, other youth organization meetings and even state and national events. 8 University of Missouri 4-H Center for Youth Development
13 Check on meeting arrangements, such as seating, lighting, temperature and location, and be responsible for club equipment. As chairperson of the program planning committee, the vice president is to: Guide the committee who plans the program for each club meeting, including what will happen when and who will be responsible. Consider the interests and ideas of all club members as the committee makes plans. Delegate responsibility and tasks to other committees. For example, the recreation committee might be responsible for planning the songs and games of each meeting. Submit the committee s program recommendations to the club. Members then accept the program unchanged as submitted or with changes approved by the members. Secretary The secretary uses MU Extension publication Y671, Missouri 4-H Club Secretary Record Book, that contains important information needed by the extension youth specialist for the county records. The secretary forms should be complete and up-to-date. At the end of the club year, the secretary works with the adult leader to complete the 4-H club form Y671B, Year-end Report. A copy of the report is then turned into the local University of Missouri Extension center. The major duties of the secretary include: Keep complete and accurate record of all meetings including membership rolls, minutes and final reports that are found in MU Extension publication Y671, Missouri 4-H Secretary Record Book. Call roll and read the minutes of the last meeting. Read correspondence sent to the club and reply when appropriate. Call the meeting to order and preside when both president and vice president are absent. Treasurer The treasurer uses MU Extension publication Y672, Missouri 4-H Treasurer Record Book, to keep accurate account of the club s financial records, handle club accounts in a business like way, keep the accounts up-to-date, and give frequent and accurate reports to the club. The major duties of the treasurer include: Keep accurate account of all money received and paid out. Deposit money in a bank and write checks from the account with the club s approval. Submit a budget early in the club year and recommend needed purchases. Give the treasurer s report at the meetings. Work with the adult leader to complete form Y672D, 4-H Annual Financial Report, at the end of the club year. A copy of the report is turned into the local University of Missouri Extension center. Have an audit taken by an auditing committee each year. The committee completes form Y672E, 4-H Audit Report. A copy of the report is turned into the local University of Missouri Extension center. So You Are a 4-H Club Officer 9
14 Recreation leader The recreation leader is responsible for the games, activities and songs for the meetings. Larger clubs may choose to divide the recreation leader office into two: song leader and game leader. Be sure that recreation is included in every monthly meeting so that 4-H is a balance of work and fun. The recreation leader should be enthusiastic, confident and know the games and activities. The major duties of the recreation leader include: Plan more games and activities than needed for each meeting. Choose games that will work for the space, age and interests of the group. Form a recreation committee to get ideas and give other members the chance to lead. Plan for special recreational events such as parties, picnics or dances throughout the year. Singing together can encourage members participate and feel more at ease. The song leader is to: Distribute and collect songbooks and song sheets at the meetings. Lead the singing and be prepared with songs at any time during the program. Teach new songs. You might ask another member who is good at teaching new songs to help. Reporter The club reporter has the opportunity to tell the community about the 4-H club. The major duties of the reporter include: Fill out MU Extension publication Y676, 4-H club Meeting Report, immediately after every meeting and send it to the local University of Missouri Extension center. The 4-H youth specialists use these reports for information about the progress of clubs in the county and may also use them for the monthly newsletter. Collect newspaper articles about the club for the secretary and historian records. Tell local newspapers about the club s activities. Write an interesting story about the club meeting and submit it to the newspaper while it is still news! You can use MU Extension publication Y676, 4-H Club Meeting Report to get started. Learn local newspaper deadlines so the 4-H story gets printed the week of the meeting. Vary the stories and how they are written. Make the stories interesting include the program title, names of participating members and something about the club activities. If a member gave a demonstration, pick out one or two important points and write about them. Short news stories are better than wordy ones. Look for good articles that happen outside the monthly 4-H club meeting. You can write interesting stories about: Your club, including the leader s name, the number in each project group and the year s program plans. Be sure to send in this information early in the club year. Election and installation of officers. Club activities that focus on topics such as wildlife conservation, grooming, courtesy and health. 10 University of Missouri 4-H Center for Youth Development
15 Events such as picnics, parties, camp, tours, achievement days and 4-H Sunday. Members participating in county, area, state and national events. Members and their projects. Historian The historian records the club s accomplishments and activities and tells the story of the 4-H club through a meaningful historian book, or scrapbook, with photos, news clippings, stories and other memorial pieces about the club. The historian uses creativity to record memories for the group! Photographer The photographer is responsible for taking photos of club activities and events. Photos are important for the reporter to submit to newspapers and for the historian to include in the club s historian book. Members need to sign a photo release, which is included in the health form. Photos are a fun way for the members to remember all the activities of the 4-H year! Additional officers 4-H clubs may add, subtract or combine offices depending on the size and needs of your club. If other officers are added, outline a specific set of responsibilities for these offices. Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other. John F. Kennedy ( ) So You Are A 4-H Club Officer 11
16 12 University of Missouri 4-H Center for Youth Development
17 So You Are President As president, you represent your local club and the 4-H program throughout the state. Your abilities, skills, standards, personal grooming, speech and even smiles represent Missouri 4-H members. This responsibility exists at all times, not just while you are at 4-H meetings. Remember, people not familiar with 4-H may judge it by its officers! Checklist for presidents I consult with the leaders to prepare for each meeting ahead of time. I notify the leader and vice president several days before the meeting if I m going to be absent. I conduct the business meetings according to parliamentary procedure and in a courteous and tactful manner. I introduce guests and ensure that they are involved in the group s activities. I help the other officers carry out their responsibilities. I encourage everyone to participate in the meeting. I make sure everyone has the chance to serve on a committee at some point during the year. I delegate responsibilities to other members rather than trying to do it all myself. I give others credit for the work they do. I thank those who participate in the program or help make arrangements. I do not dominate the meeting by giving an opinion on subjects under discussion. I represent my group proudly at other meetings and events. I try to attend as many 4-H meetings and activities as possible. I am on time and enthusiastic. A well-planned 4-H meeting consists of the business meeting (when needed) and an educational program that may include discussions, presentations, special speakers, group projects, films or recreational activities. Your responsibility to represent your local club and the 4-H program throughout the state exists at all times, not just while you are at 4-H meetings. So You Are President of Your Club 13
18 Suggested Outline for a 4-H Club Meeting Meetings should be flexible. Every meeting doesn t have to include all five parts or be in the following order. Activity for early arrival A get-acquainted or planned activity before the meeting can help members or any new prospects feel welcome and part of the group. My notes: Business meeting 20 to 30 minutes A business meeting is only necessary when you have definite business to discuss. Call to order, opening exercise and pledges (The opening sets the mood for the rest of the meeting and can include the 4 H pledge and the Pledge of Allegiance.) Songs Roll call Reading and approval of minutes, correspondence Treasurer report Report of committees Report of project groups Old business (This includes unfinished business from the previous meeting, taken from secretary s minutes.) New business (This includes appointments of special committees, plans for upcoming events, announcements, decision on next meeting time and place, etc.) Program 20 minutes to one or more hours Educational project demonstrations, illustrated talks and club activities are the heart of most 4-H meetings. Programs may include any activities identified by your group as appropriate in reaching your goals. Some possibilities are: Supervised work on projects 4-H presentations, demonstrations, talks or show and tell Guest speakers Visual presentations such as DVDs, videotapes or slides Community service activities Tours 14 University of Missouri 4-H Center for Youth Development
19 Recreation, entertainment or social time 10 to 15 minutes Recreation at club meetings allows members to create their own fun, cooperate, give and follow directions, as well as better understand themselves and others. Some clubs participate in recreational activities while waiting for all members to arrive and others prefer recreation or social time at the end of a meeting. Games are an opportunity for 4-H members to lead other members through an activity. Discussing a game or activity with members before leading it is helpful. Refreshments Each group may decide whether or not to include refreshments. If the meeting is right after school, starting with a snack may be a good idea. A Saturday morning meeting might end with refreshments. Some meetings may not need a snack. Members, not the leader, should provide refreshments. Sample Schedule of a 4-H Club Business Meeting The following order of business is standard procedure and most of the contents are used. Throughout the meeting, please and thank you and addressing members as Mr. or Ms. (Name) is strongly encouraged. Stand when addressing members and sit when reports are being given. 1. Call the meeting to order Use the gavel. The president states: The meeting of the (Name) 4-H club will come to order. Please stand as we repeat the Pledge of Allegiance and the 4-H pledge. The pledges may be preceded or followed with a song. Announce members who will lead the pledges and songs. 2. Roll call The president states: The secretary will call the roll. Call officers and members forward with Mr. or Ms. (Name). Members may report on the progress of their work at this time. The secretary states if a quorum is present. A quorum is the minimal number of members needed to conduct business. 3. Reading of the previous meeting minutes and correspondence The president states: The secretary will read the minutes of the last meeting. After the reading, the president asks: Are there any additions or corrections to the minutes? (Pause) If not, they stand approved as read. If there are corrections to the minutes, the president informally asks for them to be made. If there is an objection, a formal vote on the new wording is necessary. If the minutes are approved and an error is found later, an amendment and vote are required. Members should stand or raise a hand to be recognized. Seldom is Mr. or Ms. President called out. The president asks: Is there any correspondence to be read? So You Are President of Your Club 15
20 My notes: Members may choose to discuss letters that require action and a motion may be made at this time. The motions can be addressed during the new business part of the meeting if the discussion will be lengthy. 4. Treasurer s report The president states: We will now hear the treasurer s report. After the report, the president asks, Are there any questions about the treasurer s report? (Pause) If not, the report will be received as read. The treasurer reports on the balance of the previous report, receipts, bills and the present balance. The report is usually a meeting-to-meeting report of the financial status of the treasury. The report is not audited. Normally, the report is not accepted or approved by vote until an audit has been conducted and reported on at the annual meeting. Members may vote to approve or reject any bills. 5. Report of committees The president calls on the chair or representative of each standing or special committee to make a report. Stand only when calling on each committee chair. Standing committees are named in the bylaws and serve for a certain time. For example, a program committee that serves for one year. Special committees serve a specific, targeted goal. The president states: Are there any questions about this committee report? (Pause) If not, the report will be received as read. Generally, committee reports do not need to be adopted or accepted unless definite action is required. Either adopt or accept can be used. If action is required, the report needs to be formally accepted with a motion, a second, a discussion and a vote. 6. Old business The president states: We shall now proceed to unfinished business. Begin by asking the secretary if there are any motions pending that were not acted on at the close of the last meeting, or if there are any motions postponed for definite action during the current meeting. The president asks: Is there any other unfinished business? (Pause) If not, we shall proceed to new business. Use the gavel. 7. New business The president states: We are ready to receive any new business to bring before the club. Call a member s name to recognize him or her. Remind members that they are allowed to make suggestions and bring new business before the club. Example of motion procedure Member #1: I move. President: Is there a second? 16 University of Missouri 4-H Center for Youth Development
Duties of the President 1. PLAN * Plan the business meeting with the leader(s) and other officers before the meeting. This can be done over the phone if necessary, and it helps maintain order in the meeting.
