Club Meetings

Parliamentary Procedure

  • Parliamentary Procedure Script
  • Things to try:
    • Placing queue cards on tables to help members know what to say.
    • Have Vice-President hold up queue cards “secretly” during the meeting. Think of the “clap” or “laugh” cards for movie audiences. These cards would say what members need to say next “I move that we…” and “I second that.” Consider throwing in the silly ones to make the meeting interesting.
    • Encourage older members to encourage younger/new members to make motions. Have older members whisper what needs to be said to younger/new ones.
    • Do make a motion Trail Mix, Pizza, Sandwich, etc. Have members make motions to add things to the food. Make sure some items are not wanted there, so they know how to not have a motion pass.

Club Officer Roles

Below are some ideas for what each club officer should do in their position. Please understand that these rolls can be combined, split, or not even used. Officer positions held should be based on what the club needs.

Vibrant Club Activities

Below is a list of games and activities that 4-H Staff has enjoyed using during workshops or other events. Most of these require little to no supplies. If you need supplies for a game or activity, please get in touch with the Extension Office to see if we have some on hand. This is not an exhaustive list, and if you have something that you think we should add to this, please email it to
