Officer Info

Rock Bridge 4-H Club Officers apply for their positions at the end of the 4-H year. The deadline for Officer applications is determined by the club leader. Each prospective officer is required to fill out an application for the position(s) they are interested in. Officers may choose more than one position. So, if they aren't selected for their first choice, they are eligible for other positions. The election committee (consisting of the club leader, an adult adviser, and club members [as specified in the club bylaws])will judge officer applications.

Points are assigned by each judge and averaged to determine the final points for each applicant. The applicant receiving the highest points is awarded the position. Club officers (Executive Committee) are expected to have near-perfect attendance in order to fulfill their responsibilities to the club. The officers are also responsible for determining and recommending annual goals for the club members, who vote to accept or reject the recommendations. Club officers also recommend programming and help to establish the club programming for the 4-H year.
