 There is still time to register 4-H clubs and to get early bird rates for the 4-H Alberta Leaders' Conference. Cameron Horner, 4-H communications specialist with Alberta Agriculture and Forestry, outlines the registration process for clubs and the conference.

“Club registration is still open,” says Horner. “We are expecting about 350 clubs, and that will be around 6,000 members and about 2,000 volunteers once registration closes on December 1, 2018.”

The 75th edition of the 4-H Alberta Leaders' Conference is taking place January 25 to 27, 2019 in Edmonton. Says Horner, “This year we are focusing on targeting the projects, so all you project leaders – we are looking at you. We have some off-site tours for life skills. We have some equine, beef and sheep tours, and then we get into the nuts and bolts of the conference.”

“We have some great sessions happening both Saturday and Sunday,” he adds. “The sessions will really be based on the projects. Sessions include farm to table using Alberta produced foods, multi-species judging sessions, how to empower your multi-club volunteer leaders, pheasants, archery, creative option projects, and veterinary medicine, just to name a few.”

The Leaders' Conference banquet on the Saturday night will include the 4-H hall of fame induction ceremony.

Registration deadline for the Leaders' Conference is December 15, and early bird registration deadline is December 1. “Please note that clubs don’t need to be registered yet for a leader to register for the conference,” says Horner. “Don’t fret if your club is not registered yet.”

To register a 4-H club or to attend the 2019 Leaders' Conference, go to www.4h.ab.ca or call 780-422-4444.
