Chartering for 4-H Clubs for the new 2014-2015 Year
The state 4-H office is moving the charter deadline to July 15 this year, in order to process club charters before the beginning of the 4-H year.
For those clubs which are currently chartered, the process is very similar to last year. Below is a list of items that will be needed (and forms are attached for your convenience).
- 2014-2015 Charter Application
- Club officers list
- Annual Review of Support Group Funds (New: must have at least one reviewer who is not affiliated with the club)
- Club Budget (Clubs with no funds may substitute with an explanatory letter. A form letter is attached.)
- Bank Statement copy for each account (Clubs with no funds may substitute with an explanatory letter. A form letter is attached.)
- Bylaws – Note: New: The officers listed in the bylaws must match the club officers list. If you have a vacant position, please notify me for optional bylaw wording to provide some flexibility.
All forms may be returned by email to CPBryant@ag.tamu.edu .
I need to receive it before 7/13, so that I will have time to process it and post it to the state site by the 7/15 deadline.
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
Recordbooks are a record of what a member has learned and accomplished in a 4-H year. It includes records on project learning experiences, activities, and accomplishments. It also displays information on leadership and community service. Included in the book is a 4-H story, coupled with photos showing the youth in action.
The submission of a recordbook is an accomplishment that also qualifies members to apply for advanced awards.
The County Record books will be due in the Extension office by June 19.
If you missed one of the recordbook trainings offered in our county, online resources ( Family Guide for Recordbooks & online training modules) are available for additional information. You are also welcome to call the 4-H office with any questions you may have.

4-H Youth Sponsorship Fee
To maintain the level of programming and opportunities in the Texas 4-H and Youth Development Program, Texas AgriLife Extension Services has implemented and annual participant fee for each 4-H youth member. The participant fee is $25, or $20 if enrolled from September 1st to October 1st. (Clover Kids are exempt from this fee.)
Tarrant County 4-H and local donors have a strong desire to provide opportunities for interested youth and have secured a limited number of sponsorships for youth who may have difficulty with the fee at this time. Families with children who need sponsorships in order to participate in the program are encouraged to submit the request as soon as possible.
