Developing a system for communication / documentation is critical to the health and well-being of any organization. In order to provide a systemized approach to communication / documentation in the Wisconsin 4-H program, the Care to Share form was developed as a simple tool that could be used by members, volunteers, parents and the general public.
When members, volunteers, parents or the general public have expressed an idea, opinion, suggestion or concern regarding the Wisconsin 4-H program, they should be encouraged to complete the “Care to Share” form to clearly document their thoughts or feelings. Copies of completed forms should then be distributed to the most appropriate group or individual for their consideration.
Completed forms should be submitted to Luisa at email@example.com or mailing to Extension, 3001 US Hwy 12 E, Suite 216, Menomonie, WI 54751.

Beginning this spring, MAP will be dissolving its 4-H Charter to become a subcommittee of the Dunn County Fair Board. This means that questions related to the Livestock Auction will need to be directed to the committee and the Fair Board. Here is the link to the webpage: https://dunncountyfair.org/meat-animal-project/ If you have species specific questions, contact your superintendent. The superintendent list is available on the 4-H Fairs Page.
Starting next fall there will be no 4-H projects specifically marked MAP. Beef, Swine, Goats and Sheep will continue to be Dunn County 4-H project options. For YQCA this year, the Fair Board decided a valid certificate for 2020 will be accepted for the 2021 fair.

UW-Extension’s Local Government Center recently produced a series of brief videos that offer guidance on four critical and sometimes confusing topics related to parliamentary procedure including:
Posted on the Center’s YouTube page, these videos are not intended to be of high production value, but were developed in-house using a basic video camera. They feature Dan Hill (recently retired Local Government Specialist) and Larry Larmer (Local Government Center Outreach Specialist), experienced experts in teaching and practicing parliamentary procedure in Wisconsin as well as other Center Specialists and support staff serving as actors. Each video highlights the issue, offers background on why the issue may present itself and demonstrates the proper ways to address that issue within the context of a formal meeting. These videos were developed by the Local Government Center’s three partner organizations including the Wisconsin Counties Association, the League of Wisconsin Municipalities and the Wisconsin Towns Association to have something brief that could be shared with boards, councils or organizational leadership during a typical meeting of the body.
Videos range in duration from 4-6 minutes.
