The Fall Forum is the annual meeting of the Wisconsin 4-H Adult
Leader Council. This meeting is held in partnership with the Wisconsin
4-H Youth Leader Council. The Fall Forum provides a forum for issue awareness and discussion and education on emerging opportunities. It also provides an environment for delegates from every county to share ideas. Each county sends
an adult volunteer leader delegate. In addition a youth representative
from each county is invited. As part of the business meeting, the
ALC elects the Executive Board.
The Executive Board is elected at Fall Forum and is representative of the 4-H leaders by geographic regions. They meet three times annually. This includes a
winter, summer and fall meeting.
Events and activities of the Wisconsin 4-H Adult Leader Council
are supported in part through successful grants from the Wisconsin
4-H Foundation , the Monsanto Corporation, 4-H Youth Development Program Area, and fees for participation in Fall Forum.
