Hello Everyone, my name is Jamie Forinash, and I am super excited about serving as this year’s 2009 State Council President. Welcome to our Blog! Be sure to check back as often as you'd like for updates on what your state council is doing to serve you and your 4-H program. Posts will be new and updated regularly.
On February 1st, the 2009 State Council took a leap into the new year during the induction ceremony at the annual State Leadership Conference. We laughed off the butterflies and received the green Blazer. We all looked forward to the year we would spend together serving the 4-H program.
After leaving State Leadership Conference we had a little over 2 weeks to prepare ourselves for the training weekend. During Training & Orientation Weekend, we spent time getting to know ourselves, our advisors, and our team so that we could form a strong foundation. We made a few decisions, for example planning the State Achievement Days theme and also the theme for 2010 State Leadership Conference. We learned different skills and gave a speech we prepared for the weekend. As we departed that Sunday of training weekend, I felt very confident in our team and proud of the 4-H program. I know I can speak for the team when I say that we are very excited for the year to come.
Please stay updated as we move forward to Capital Days this April. I’m looking forward to this opportunity to serve you, our 4-H members and our 4-H program and to meet many people throughout our state.
Pennsylvania 4-H State President
