VAA4-HVL board members and advisors met in Amherst in late January to begin plans to implement the 2016- 2020 strategic plan. Over the course of 2016 the executive board developed a strategic plan with the following vision and mission statements.
To support and retain Virginia adult 4-H volunteer leaders to strengthen the Virginia 4-H youth development program.
To educate and train 4-H adult volunteer leaders so that they can promote and provide support for the Virginia 4-H programs.
To accomplish the mission and vision of the association, three goal areas (promotion, resources, and financial resource development) with defined objectives and strategies were identified. The VAA4-HVL plans to conduct a survey of volunteers to learn more about what training topics are most needed.
