What is 4-H Council?
The Middle Park 4-H Council is the youth-led governing body of the Middle Park 4-H clubs. This Council makes decisions regarding county 4-H policies and procedures that influence all 4-H members. 4-H members are all encouraged to get involved with council. Meetings are usually on the first Monday of each month (unless it falls on a holiday) at 7:00pm at the Hot Sulphur Springs Town Hall. Leaders may determine another meeting schedule to best meet leader and member needs.
4-H Council offers many opportunities for members to get involved. Through community service, educational programming and fundraising, members engage with their community. Members also further develop the life skills and values that 4-H is all about. To see what Council is up to and how you can get involved check out the Latest Newsletter .
Middle Park 4-H Council is led by the following slate of officers: President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Reporter, Parliamentarian, and Pledge Leader. There are also two Senators and an Alternate Senator that represent Grand County at district and state 4-H meetings. These are all elected positions. Council also has two adviser positions. If you are interested in any of these positions, see the Council Officer and Council Advisor applications below.
Middle Park 4-H Council can also provide financial assistance to those wishing to attend 4-H leadership conferences. See the Trip Assistance Form below or the Grand County 4-H Handbook for details on requirements.
Each club should have at least two elected delegates who attend council meetings regularly and report back to their clubs. Attending council meetings regularly can open up even more district and state level opportunities. It is yet another opportunity 4-H youth “learn by doing.”
