The Florida 4-H State Council is the youth governance arm of the Florida 4-H Council, composed of two (2) voting delegates from each county that has paid its council dues.
The annual meeting of the State Council is held at Florida 4-H University; this is generally the only meeting during the 4-H year. During this meeting, the business of the Council is conducted and new officers are elected.
The State 4-H Council Officers then represent the voice of youth on various statewide advisory boards, committees, and planning teams throughout the year.
Voting delegates for the 2023 State Council meeting during 4-H University must be submitted by a county 4-H professional by June 26, 2023. All voting delegates must be registered and in attendance at 4-H University. Information for the event can be found by clicking the following link, 2023 State Council Voting Delegate Information.
