Butte 4-H County Council
What is the Butte 4-H County Council?
The Butte 4-H County Council is a group which makes local decisions and policy regarding 4-H in Butte County. This group is made up of active, ex-officio, and honorary members. The Council has an executive officer panel made up of active members, including President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary, and Reporter/Historian.
Active members must be appointed 4-H adult volunteers or Senior 4-H youth members. Ex-officio members are the County Director, 4-H Advisor, or 4-H Program Representative. Honorary members may be appointed by the County Director or Council for individuals who are not active or ex-officio members and have made an outstanding contribution to the 4-H program.
Active members have the power to vote, while ex-officio and honorary members are allowed to voice their opinions, but not vote.
What does the Council do?
The Butte 4-H County Council is responsible for making and amending local 4-H policy. State 4-H policy cannot be changed and must be observed, but local policy regarding the Butte County 4-H Program can be made and changed by the Council.
Common policies and changes that are made often have to do with 4-H County Events, 4-H Fair Requirements, and Council budgeting.
The Butte 4-H County Council typically meets the last Thursday at 7:00pm.
On occasion meetings will fall on a different Thursday (November due to Thanksgiving, May due to Silver Dollar Fair, and June due to the 4-H Camp).
