  • Youth and adults learn together!
  • All participants will take great resources and inspiration home with them.
  • This year’s forum offers over 25 educational workshops and over 15 different interactive learning stations.

Fall Forum is planned by the Wisconsin 4-H Leadership Council and county staff.  The workshops and activities are led by teams of youth and adult volunteer leaders, county staff, and state specialists.

Youth and adults interested in applying for the Wisconsin 4-H Leadership Council need to complete an application and submit it before Fall Forum.  Both youth and adult applicants need a recommendation from the county 4-H Youth Development staff member. Applications and deadlines will be posted soon on the Wisconsin 4-H Leadership Council web page.

How Do Participants Register?

Registration is required for ALL PARTICIPANTS.

Staff do NOT need to pay registration or lodging fees, but do need to register.  In order to register, please create a participant account for yourself using a different email address from your “manager” account (another UW email address – laura.pine instead of lpine, a county email address, or personal email address).  You may want to add your regular email address as the “individual” email on this account so that you still receive broadcast emails.  Contact Mike Farrey, mike.farrey@wisc.edu for help.

Registration is open September 10 through October 2.

No late registration or onsite registrations will be offered.  

During registration, participants choose Saturday AM and PM PM sessions.
