Dear Presenter,

Thank you for your interest in delivering a presentation at the 2010 California State 4-H Leadership Conference, July
29th, 2010 – August 1st, 2010 at UC Davis. The success of this conference is directly related to your willingness to
work with teens and provide meaningful educational opportunities.

The conference – “Operation 4-H" - will provide over 500 high school aged youth and adult 4-H volunteers with an
opportunity to engage in hands on learning experiences while developing citizenship and leadership skills. Delegates
will have an opportunity to learn the responsibilities of being a leader and the importance of leadership. Along with
the university experience, the educational presentations are an integral part of this conference.

Sessions address many subject areas, but we ask that they emphasize the three National 4-H Mission Mandates. These
mission mandates each focus on skills that youth need for success in the 21 st century.
     4-H Science, Engineering and Technology (SET) provides opportunities for youth to engage in the
        process of discovery and exploration in science, engineering, and technology.
     Healthy Living teaches the youth to lead healthy and productive lives both physically and mentally as they
        grow into adulthood.
     Citizenship is a strong focus in 4-H so that youth may become engaged and well-informed citizens in their

Tracks are five hours in length and will be presented on Friday, July 30. Mini tracks are two and a half hours in
length and will be presented twice on Friday, July 30. Workshops are an hour and fifteen minutes in length and may
be presented one to three times on Saturday, July 31.

Enclosed you will find the session proposal form, which you need to fill out in order to present a track, mini-track or
workshop. Please complete the enclosed form and return it to California State 4-H Office by February 26th, 2010.

Delegate registration fees support the California State 4-H Leadership Conference. In an effort to keep registration
fees reasonable, our presenters donate their time towards the worthwhile education of youth. To thank our
volunteers, all presenters can request reimbursement for travel expenses up to $50.00 as well as receive free
duplicating of all educational materials. In addition, presenters not registering for the conference will receive a
complimentary meal in the dining commons.

Many presenters prefer to have a “room host” to aid in the logistics of their workshop. The room hosts are
responsible for checking-in delegates, helping with set-up, introducing the presenter, and distributing and returning
presentation evaluations to the Presenter’s Lounge. Without a room host, the presenter would be responsible for
these duties. Would you like a room host?
