Cailen Bromley Named Ontario 4-H Council Director-Youth

(Posted February 2, 2016)

On January 23, 2016, the Ontario 4-H Council accepted the appointment of Cailen Bromley as Ontario 4-H Council Director-Youth. Bromley, 19, of Renfrew County has been a 4-H member for nine years and has completed 68 projects. She replaces the outgoing Alex Mitchell.

Bromley will commence her duties in the position on Saturday, April 2, 2016 at the inaugural 2016 Ontario 4-H Council meeting at 4-H Ontario’s Conference and Annual Meeting in Alliston, Ontario. There is a two year appointment for this position.

The Director-Youth on the Ontario 4-H Council Board of Directors brings the views and issues of 4-H members to Ontario 4-H Council Board discussions. The Director-Youth provides input into governance issues during board meetings. Meetings include both face-to-face meetings and teleconferences. 

This position also helps to manage the strategic development of the 4-H Ontario program. Directors, through shared vision, develop 4-H Ontario governance policies.

Bromley brings a wealth of leadership experience to the position, having been a Youth Leader since age 16, being a Youth Director for Renfrew County, as the Queen of the Furrow, coaching soccer and hockey and traveling all across Ontario in 2015 as a 4-H Ontario Youth Ambassador.

Accepting this role will allow her to give back to a program, which she says has given her so much, by using the skills she has learned in 4-H. It will also give her a chance to represent the youth of the program and bring their ideas to the table.

“I would like to give light to the members’ ideas and hopes and see them set in motion to make the program better,” she says. “I also believe this will further my further my leadership skills by teaching me more about long term planning, goal setting, mission statements and moving from the vision of a future to the implementation of those visions.”
