2014 State 4-H Leader Forum

The Northern Extension District 4-H volunteers and staff welcome you to the 2014 State 4-H Leader Forum in Lewiston, Idaho on November 7-9.  The Red Lion will serve as our conference hotel, with a flat room rate of $85/night plus tax for single to quad occupancy.

A variety of pre-Forum tours will be available Friday, including a jet boat tour by Snake Dancer Excursions, “Taste of the Valley” agribusiness adventure, downtown Lewiston underground haunts and much more.  Opening ceremonies featuring former 4-H member and director of SEL University, Jackie Peer, will energize us Saturday morning.  A wide array of  20 stimulating workshops will be offered throughout the day, with the State DSA and Hall of Fame Banquet highlighting the evening festivities.  Capnote speaker, Jana Kemp, will inspire and challenge us to new heights during the closing ceremonies on Sunday morning.

So whether you’re packing the car, hopping a plane or even paddling your own canoe to the confluences of the Snake and Clearwater Rivers, Lewiston Idaho is the place to be November 7-9, 2014.


Hotel reservations should be made directly with Red Lion (208-799-1000 or 800-232-6730).  Be sure to mention you’re with the 2014 State 4-H Leader Forum and special rate of $85/night; this should avoid subsequent delays at check-in.

Registration & Schedule

The 2014 State Leader Forum planning committee is looking forward to hosting you in beautiful Lewiston, November 7-9.  Despite the loss this year of a significant donor to State 4-H Leader Forums nationwide, we have worked diligently to secure supplemental funding to ensure the registration costs for volunteers and youth are truly affordable.  A complete registration packet and schedule can be found below.

Everything you need to know, from workshop descriptions and pre-Forum tours to securing space for table-top displays or submitting an auction item is all contained within the registration packet.  After reviewing everything being offered, we think you will find this Forum to be an excellent investment in your personal growth.  What do you think?
