We are very happy to announce that 4-H BC is now accepting nominations for the Ralph and Mae Barichello Leadership Award. This award will be given to an individual who has gone above and beyond what is expected of them in terms of community, agricultural involvement and/or participation in 4-H.
4-H played an important part in developing my interests in the agricultural industry and influencing my career choices. It provided the foundation for many of the skills I rely upon as a Professional Agrologist in terms of my understanding of agricultural issues, growing my leadership skills, becoming a confident public speaker, and developing relationships within the Agricultural community.
4-H Canada is proud to announce a new partnership with Saputo Inc. (Saputo), together with their long-established brand, Armstrong Cheese. The partnership will see Saputo investing $660,000 over three years to give the next generation of dairy leaders and innovators the opportunity to positively impact their communities.
The calendar tells us that it is spring, but if your area of the province is anything like it is here in the Okanagan, we are still waiting for it to arrive! Year two of online enrolment is going much better. Due to a staffing shortage in the office we had to extend the deadline until March 30th, but it is my hope that we will have it all completed by then. Improvements to the system for this year included: Key Leaders and A Leaders having access to reports on registered members and leaders in their club/district, a notification system that will send a renewal reminder email to individual leaders prior to their CRC expiring, plus tools that allow the 4-H office to resolve enrolment issues in a timely manner.
