Western Regional Leaders' Forum
This conference was started in California in 1966 as a staff and volunteer joint effort. This conference is a leadership opportunity for state, county, and district staff, and 4-H volunteers to share skills and knowledge. This multi-stage, educational "volunteer forum" is held every year, hosted by a different state in the western region of the United States (including Alaska and Hawaii). Usually held in the early spring or late winter, the conference is hosted by one or two states on a rotating schedule each year. WRLF includes guest speakers, skill-building workshops, entertainment and cultural activities from the location and plenty of time for networking, connecting with 4-H friends and making new ones. The 13 states in the region are Alaska, Alberta (Canada), Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, New Mexico, Montana, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.
