2013 Maryland 4-H Volunteer Forum
Come join us for this year’s Maryland 4-H Volunteer Forum: Strengthening Leadership in Adults & Teens in Ocean City, MD. It is a wonderful time of the year to visit the resort area. With the slower pace, traffic and parking problems are almost non-existent. Air temperatures are usually comfortable this time of year allowing you to enjoy the beauty of the area. The event provides time to meet other 4-H families and learn more about all the wonders of the 4-H program. It is an excellent opportunity for teen and adult volunteers to learn the knowledge and skills necessary to be successful leaders in their local 4-H programs. There are classes offered in environmental sciences, camping, animal sciences, leadership, volunteer development, human sciences, SET, and many other exciting topic areas.
The Carousel Resort Hotel is our host for the weekend. This Ocean City landmark is known for its indoor ice rink, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, and family friendly accommodations. The Forum has saved a block of rooms for early bird registrants at an excellent rate of just $68/room per night (plus taxes). Most rooms have two double beds and feature a microwave and mini-refrigerator. Call the Carousel directly at 1-800-641-0011 to reserve your room by October 10, 2013 and be sure to mention the MD 4-H Forum for the special rate. Ocean front rooms and condos are also available for slightly more. A family weekend in OC doesn’t get any more affordable!
Register by October 10th to receive the “early bird” conference rate of $75.00. The registration fee is $100.00 for registrations postmarked after October 10th. Registrations must be accompanied by a check and will only be accepted until October 31st; don’t delay, register today! Check with your local 4-H Educator about the availability of a Forum Scholarship. Address any questions to Forum Coordinators, Dr. Lisa Dennis at email@example.com, 410-603-0000 or Cheryl Hill at firstname.lastname@example.org, 888-326-9645.
