4-H'ers must complete an enrollment card in order to be a member of a 4-H program. This form needs to be completed annually. The enrollment form is kept on file at the County Extension Office. All 4-H'ers are expected to enroll as members of 4-H in the county where they attend school or live full time. In situations where 4-H'ers would like to become a 4-H member in a county other than their school system or residing county, a formal change of membership request must be made.
