Event & Date
We're Going Virtual for Vision
2020 State Leadership Conference
July 24-26, 2020
While we had hoped that State Leadership Conference would be able to be held this summer to continue the tradition of teaching Leadership skills with a hands-on experience, it’s become clear the impact of COVID-19 will continue to be felt for the foreseeable future and that large gatherings should not be held. Based on the advice of health experts and the continued guidance issued by the Governor and University of California leadership, we have decided to move State Leadership Conference to a virtual format. The health and safety of our 4-H members and volunteers are our number one priority.
The State Ambassadors and the members of State Leadership Conference planning team are working diligently to create an engaging and interactive on-line experience. Schedule and registration will be announced within the next few weeks.
Thank you for your support!
