|4-H ONLINE Record Book Training, Tuesday night, January 15th 5:30- 7pm. (RSVP by 1/11/13)||
The 21st Century is making its way to Monterey County 4-H! There will be a free, 4-H ONLINE Record Book Training for one night only. This will be held before the County Council meeting.
Scott Mautte the 4-H Thrive Program Representative III from UC Davis has agreed to come to Monterey County to put a brief ONLINE Record Book training for each 4-H club in a lively and informative presentation.
Each club must send at least one record book representative or a tech savvy person to this training. (Adult preferred, but additional youth also welcome) The council is paying for his travel expenses. You are encouraged to bring a laptop computer but it is not required.
Please note - Online Record Books are not required by any club or county - However, your club may find them to be extremely useful in gathering documentation such as volunteer hours, observation on the record book process, accurate documentation of project and club activities, a fail safe way to store documentation (has your computer crashed?) all while using the same forms you always have.
Dinner refreshments will be provided with council business to follow at 7pm. Your representative may want to observe the online Record Book information found at the California 4-H State website. There are a series of recorded webinar sessions that you can sit and listen while using your computer.
Disclaimer - Scott will not offer information on "what goes where and why" in a 4-H Record Book. He is simply the person who makes the online record book system work at the state level. &a
