Resolve to have a great 4-H year

What is your New Year’s resolution for 4-H?

4-H club resolutions for the New Year!

As we begin 2014, it might be fun to set 4-H club resolutions for new year. Here are ten suggestions by Michigan State University Extension to make the upcoming year a successful one.

  1. Resolve that the club meetings will start and end on time.
  2. Business meetings will follow Roberts Rules of Order. All club paperwork such as minutes, club inventory and financial statements will be completed in a timely manner.
  3. All members will take part in discussions and have a say in decisions that are made. Keep a chart with each members’ name and when they speak at business meetings.
  4. The club meeting place will be safe, comfortable and welcoming.
  5. Fun will be included in each meeting.
  6. The club will pursue at least one community service project chosen, planned and celebrated by the club.
  7. New members will have a buddy they may talk with about any 4-H questions.
  8. The 4-H Pledge will be said at every meeting.
  9. Visit the MSU Extension office at least three times in 2014.
  10. Recognize every club member in some way to let them know you care about them.

In addition, make a resolution to do a club activity around each of the seven Guiding Principles for Positive Youth Development; discuss the effective practice of each principle.

In December of 2014, review your club resolutions and Guiding Principles activities.  Measure as a club how many resolutions were obtained.
