This document outlines records that need to be retained; the length of retention; method of storage and disposal action.
It is also suggested to check with the department head in your county to determine if there are any county records retention policies that apply to 4-H Youth Development programs locally.
Other records you may consider retaining are historical data to gather trend information for programming purposes.
If you have older club records that you no longer need or have storage space and they have historical value – please explore your local historical society or the Steenbock Library located in Madison. This University of Wisconsin Madison library is the home to other statewide UW-Extension and 4-H Youth Development historical records.
