Executive Board

What is Executive Board? 

The Florida State 4-H Council Executive Board consists of 4 delegates from each of the 13 4-H districts, up to 30 Executive Board Appointees, and the 8 Florida 4-H State Officers.

The Executive Board is a group of youth from across the state that represent their county and district. The members attend working committee meetings at Executive Board Weekend Events, during which they offer input into events such as 4-H UniversityLegislature,  4-H Day at the Capitol, and Intermediate State.

Committee members also play a vital role in the implementation of those events. Other committees work on planning and implementing a state-wide community service project, fund raising, parli pro education, entertainment, and communication support.

Elected and Appointed Delegates

Each district elects or appoints four district representatives, so contact your local 4-H agent for more information. In addition, the State Council Officers appoint up to 30 Executive Board Appointees. If you are interested in the Executive Board Appointments, read the following information and submit the forms to Grace Carter at grace.carter@ufl.edu by July 27, 2016.
