    With effect

    Dear Teachers

    In the following headlines of an announcement that there will be changes in manager on 1 August. Are they all correct? Which one is preferred? Which one is incorrect? The all sound "correct" to me as a non-natvie speaker.

    1. Manager changes with effect 1 August 2013
    2. Manager changes with effect from 1 August 2013
    3. Manager changes effective from 1 August 2013
    4. Manager changes effective 1 August 2013



    Please advise.

    Regards

    Anthony the learner

    For me, #4 is by far the best.
