This event provides a time and place for volunteers to meet each other, learn new information and skills, and keep abreast of county opportunities and resources. It also gives us an opportunity to recognize and thank our leaders for the amazing things they do all year long. We’re pleased to announce that wonderful guest speakershave been lined up to present new and interesting topics:

Attendees will discover their leadership style and how to make it work for them. JoAnn Overbey, Awards Director, will present a short session on the differences between a Junior Leader and a Teen Leader and will present and explain the Leadership Development record book form.

New Year, New Record Book Forms! As we begin a new school year and 4-H program year, please be aware that record book forms have changed. The State 4-H office has published new, revised versions of the PDR (Personal Development Report), APR (Annual Project Re- port), and Jr/Teen Leader Report. Don’t worry....... The changes are relatively small and just ask that you log your hours along with the other information you have already been tracking. New Record Book Forms are available in the 4-H office and online at slocounty4h.org. Besides the PDR, APR, and Jr/Teen Leader Report, all of the other forms (including project-specific county forms) will remain the same (woohoo!)
Presenting....... The Online Record Book!
Are you a “technology person”? Do you live on Facebook, Twitter, or by text message? If so, you’re going to love the latest development in 4-H Record Books: the Online Record Book (ORB). The ORB is designed very similar to Facebook, so it’s interactive and helps you keep in touch with your online 4-H community. Throughout the year, you can log your activities in the ORB and it will automatically categorize them into the correct sections of the PDR. When you are ready to complete your Record Book, you simply type up your 4-H Story, make revisions, and print. The Online Record Book is completely voluntary, so if you prefer to keep with the “old-fashioned” way of record keeping, that’s just fine.
To learn more about the Online Record Book, view the Member Online Record Book Training Video at: http://www.ca4h.org/Resources/Members/RecordBook/RBResources/
If you’d like to start using the ORB, have your parent contact Denise Harris at the 4-H office, 781-5943, for a 4hOnline family password.
The President’s Volunteer Service Awards
The President’s Volunteer Service Awards are part of a nation-wide program that recognizes youth for volunteering in their communities. Bronze, silver, and gold medals are awarded based on hours of service. SLO County 4-H is proud to be a part of this program to encourage volunteer service and civic participation*.
Now is the perfect time to start thinking about working towards an award in 2011-2012. Because the President’s Volunteer Service Award requires a log of community service hours, it is best to fill out your application throughout the year and not procrastinate until the last minute.
New applications for the 2011-2012 program year are available online at SLOCOUNTY4H.ORG under the subheading “Registration Forms and Applications”. They will also be available at Achievement Night on October 1st, and in the 4-H office (781-5943). For more information, contact Citizenship and Community Service Key Leader Karen Ludwig at 466-1216. *Please note that they are no longer processing applications for 4-H leaders, only 4-H members age 19 and younger.
