Grant County 4-H Council Officers recently attended the Grant County Commissioners meeting to help the officers gain a better understanding of how county government meetings work. The officers also observed the meeting held by the Copper Cowbells and learned the use of parliamentary procedures. These meetings gave the 4-H Officers an opportunity to learn and see two different uses of parliamentary procedure in two different settings and it gave them a chance to apply their newly gained knowledge in their own meetings and styles of teamwork.
