This is a money market fund like our other SunTrust accounts with a balance of $100,000.00. • Professional development services to members were provided through the use of the Clover Pledge money market fund. This fund has a balance of $144,318.00 and serves the purpose of supporting professional development services for our members. To date these funds have been utilized for an online awards submission and management system, an online abstract management system for professional development session submissions beginning with the 2014 conference, and the development of a mobile app for the 2014 conference. $118,553.00 remains in the Clover Pledge endowment at National 4-H Council Activities Fund and will continue to serve as a conduit for tax deductible donations to be made to NAE4-HA. • A dues increase was authorized by the board of trustees to take effect January 1, 2015. Dues will be $80 for all active and affiliate members. This is the first dues increase since 2007. The board determined the dues increase necessary to ensure that the association continues to provide progressive levels of professional development; maximize the use of technology; elevate the quality of youth development work through scholarship, research and practice; and advocate for the youth development profession. • The Policy and Resolutions and Organizational Stewardship Committees collaboratively fully implemented the online election procedures for the first time in 2014.

National 4-H Council Jennifer McIver • Council continues to grow its investment in Cooperative Extension's high quality 4-H youth development programs. • National 4-H Council achieved $39.3 million in overall revenue for fiscal year 2014 with the Resource Development Team raising $21 million of that total. This represents growth of 3% from the FY13 and is on pace with nonprofit industry benchmarks. • New and returning investors included: CME group, ConAgra Foods Foundation, Disney Worldwide Conservation, HughesNet, Merck Animal Health and Tractor Supply Company • Thanks to Council associates, the engagement and leadership of the Board of Trustees and strong partnerships with state and local 4-H programs, Council brought life changing 4-H experiences directly to nearly 300,000 young people through grants to Cooperative Extension 4-H programs and the National 4-H Youth Conference Center. • The Department of Justice's Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) just awarded National 4-H Council $9,800,000 for the 4-H National Mentoring Program (4-H NMP). This increase in funding from previous years is a direct result of the 4-H System's success in providing one-to-one and group mentoring services to youth. In addition, the leadership of Dr. Lisa Lauxman - Director, Division of Youth and 4-H at NIFA - on the OJJDP Coordinating Council has been a critical element in raising the profile of 4-H within the agency. • LGUs across the country will have the opportunity to continue, enhance and expand mentoring services to at risk, high risk, or underserved populations through replication of three successful Cooperative Extension System youth mentoring programs.
National 4-H Council Jennifer McIver • New Leaders and Roles at Council • Council continued to build a strong leadership team to drive marketing, fundraising and strategy in support of our mission. • Mitch Head, Chief Information Officer, leads Council's domestic and global technology strategies to increase investment and participation in high quality 4-H positive youth development. • Don Mohanlal (Mohan), Executive Director, Innovation and Impact, leads Council's work to provide direct support for positive youth development program partners in the United States and around the world. • ArtisStevens, SVP, Marketing and Brand, leads Council's efforts to transform the 4-H brand and oversees marketing for all revenue units, including the National 4-H Youth Conference Center and the National 4-H Supply Service. • Lupe Landeros, Lead Advisor, New 4-H Audiences, will lead Council's strategy in partnership with LGUs to expand 4-H's reach to new and underserved audiences.
National 4-H Council Jennifer McIver • What's Ahead In Fiscal Year 2015: • National 4-H Council's commitment to providing even more young people with a life changing 4-H experience has never been stronger. Council will align strategy and resources in those areas where we can most unique contribute to 4-H's success: • Leverage the power of Cooperative Extension and 4-H • Create private sector partnerships; and • Tell the 4-H story at a national level • Overall revenue is projected to increase by 7% to $44.5 million, with continued engagement of corporate, foundation and federal partners in STEM, health, food security and mentoring. • The Council team is also excited to partner with Extension leaders across the country to identify new and innovative ways to reach more young people, including underserved youth, with a 4-H experience. • We are already making progress in building partnership and consensus with Extension around growth--specifically around reaching new and underserved audiences. In June, Council's Board, lead by Trustees Cathann Kress and Delbert Foster hosted a meeting of key Extension leaders to discuss this topic. • The report from that meeting, Ensuring 4-H Grows, makes a compelling case for all who care about youth to address issues of inclusion and growth. • Council staff members are conducting individual meetings with state program leaders to develop preliminary core partnership agreements that outline goals and define new working relationships.
National 4-H Council Jennifer McIver • Mark Your Calendars: • The 2014 4-H National Youth Science Day on is October 8.
