The Young Leaders Committee works to stay energized and has seen an extremely large increase in the number of active participants. Three years ago we sent out letters to all M members between the ages of 18-35. We followed that with several different media efforts which included radio ads and newspaper articles. We also enlisted young professionals around the county. We have co-sponsored several different social events with other counties in the district, set plans for regularly scheduled meetings and set in place a Program of Work. This year the committee completed 27 different programs and activities. The committee has held several activities this year that include College Recruitment days, Transportation updates and sponsoring FFA & 4-H activities and participating in several districts and statewide Young Leader activities. They are also working hard to give back to the community through local food pantry donations.
