Senior Members’ Conference / Selections Weekend

Senior Member`s Conference takes place once a year and is the only provincial conference purely dedicated to Senior Members (Ages 15 and up).  Normally happens over a three-day period and changes its location every year, it provides Senior Members with a chance to explore and experience new things while given them a greater insight into the 4-H program.  In the past, this weekend has involved all different kinds of activities, which would appeal to every different kind of 4-H member and their interest.  Past Activities include:  Parasailing, Night on the Farm, Wacky Olympics,             4-H Town Hall Session, Swimming, Rock Climbing, Shopping, Leadership and Team Building Session and a Closing Banquet.

Also, connected with Senior Members` Conference is Selections Weekend.   Since it is only Senior Members who are eligible for National and International Travel, the NL Provincial Council decided that this weekend will be a factor as to who gets selected for trips.  During this conference, all the members are observed by the Provincial Council and chaperones; they are watched for things like behavior, 4-H Spirit and participation. Later on, when members apply for trips. the selections committee will refer back to what the members were like during this conference and that will factor into their final decisions.
