OFFICER DUTIES The fall months are the usual time for election of 4-H Club Officers. Installation of officers normally takes place in November or December. All elections should be conducted by secret ballot. The following is a list of suggested guidelines for officer elections. 1. Officers should have completed one year of 4-H work. 2. If possible, members should only be elected to an office once in their 4-H career. This is to spread out the leadership experience among club members. 3. Do not combine offices unless you have too few members to fill them. Some general guidelines for officers in their individual offices include: PRESIDENT Contacts the leader(s) several days ahead of the meeting to discuss information concerning announcements, new business, committee meetings and upcoming events. Arrives early and arranges for the meeting. This may be delegated to others but it the responsibility of the president to see that it occurs. Start the meeting on time. Follow parliamentary procedure. Be sure all members have equal chances to express their views. Appoint committees to work on details. VICE PRESIDENT In charge of meeting in the absence of the president. Is in charge of all committees to see that they all function properly and report back to club members. SECRETARY Keeps complete and accurate minutes of all meetings. In the secretary's absence the President appoints a member to take minutes. Keeps the Secretary book in order. Minutes are read at each meeting. Handles all of the club correspondence. TREASURER Take care of the club funds. Be sure the bank statements and bank signature card are transferred to the new treasurer. Have a receipt book purchased so that a receipt is written when money is received. Give a monthly report on checking and savings balance as well as money deposited or bills received and paid. HISTORIAN(S) Keep a record of the club for the year in scrapbook form. Organize the Historian book to tell the 4-H Club story for the current year. Turn in Historian book to Extension Office by September 1 for judging. NEWS REPORTER To keep the public informed of the club's activities. Write a short news story of each club activity and meeting and mail it to the newspaper immediately after the event. Newspapers will not publish club news if it is more than 2 weeks old. RECREATION LEADER Assumes leadership in organizing a "fun" activity for each meeting and special responsibilities for parties or activities. May have a different committee assist them for events. Take time to understand the officer responsibility at the beginning of the year. Use these tips and guidelines to insure great 4-H meetings.
