North Central Region 4-H Volunteer e-Forums 2015
The North Central Region Extension Volunteer Specialists are planning the 2015 4-H Volunteer e-Forums for Teen and Adult Volunteers, parents/caregivers, and Extension staff. A good cross section of ND counties participated in the e-Forums held in 2011 and 2013. I am hoping we have wonderful participation from ND for the 2015 e-forums.
Please consider hosting one or more of these events in your county. They are a wonderful way to join 11 other NCR states in receiving 4-H Volunteer training virtually. In ND, counties who host this series of online trainings will receive $100 per session reimbursement to cover some of the costs of hosting a site which may include stacks, handouts, etc. upon completion of the session evaluation.
For more information, promotional bookmarks, flyers, and to register your site for the webinars visit the NCR 4-H Volunteer e-Forum 2015 site at: http://fyi.uwex.edu/ncrvd/4-h-volunteer-e-forum/
To get an idea of the format of the e-forums you can view the Adobe Connect archives of the 2011 and 2013 4-H Volunteer e-forums from this site too. These online archives are wonderful training resources.
Please mark these dates on your calendar and share them with those involved with 4-H in your county and please contact Rachelle Vettern if you are interested in hosting. A host site facilitator training webinar will be held September 24, 2015 at 2 pm CST. This is not mandatory, but is being offered to assist with planning and hosting these events.

Encouraging the HEART of Leadership Dec. 3 at 6 p.m. (CT) and Dec. 8 at 7 p.m.(CT)
