4-H Manitoba Head Leaders are reminded that for the 2021-22 and future 4-H years, Manitoba 4-H Council will be forwarding Leader Years of Service and Member Years in 4-H seals and certificates following completion of the year (after August 31 in each year). The change is required to efficiently manage Years of Service and Member Years in 4-H, as well as ensure M4HC is correctly acknowledging the years of membership and volunteer service of our dedicated leaders.
