Youth Conference Committee
The Youth Conference Committee (YCC) was formed to serve as the Executive Committee of the Youth Advisory Council (YAC). The YCC consists of the Chairman and Co-Chairman and a maximum of 8 committee members. These 10 youth along with any peer counselors are appointed to these positions by the State office personnel. The YCC will implement the design set forth by the YAC for the annual Youth Directors Conference (YDC). They will also serve as masters of ceremonies during the annual YDC.
Members of the YCC will serve for one year starting in October 2005 until the next September 2006 (2007, 2008 and so on). YCC members will be chosen based on participation in the youth directors program both locally and regionally. Most appointees will be selected through their involvement with the YAC however the state office reserves the right to choose any youth involved in the Youth Directors Program that they determine is outstanding enough to be honored with this task. The state office also reserves the right to purge any youth that fails to meet the requirements of this select group and/or for exhibiting conduct unbecoming of a Florida PAL Youth Director at this level.
The YCC will meet a minimum of twice (2) annually (or more as deemed necessary by state pal). PAL with youth that have been chosen to serve in this capacity will be notified prior to the scheduled YCC training dates of each calendar year and youth that are approved by their director and affirmed by the state office may have a small induction ceremony during the annual YAC event if the schedule permits.
