Youth Leadership Seminar on March 3, 2022 – Discuss the seminar and decide who is writing the annual report on the Youth Leadership Seminar.

Council came to a consensus that at the next leadership seminar the council should assign groups for the main project instead of allowing the students to pick their own. This would allow them to branch out and meet new people instead of staying with their friends groups from their school.

Co-Chairperson Ben Hamilton stated that he would rather have two speakers and give them more time to speak instead of three.

Annual Report to City Council – Your Council’s governing resolution requires your Council to present an annual report to the City Council each April. The annual report is a summary of your Council’s accomplishments during your term, but which also includes recommendations to your successors. In order to write and organize this report, individual members of your Council, typically in January and February, accept assignments or volunteer to write each of the report’s sections (normally based on 2-4 projects/goals). 

Member Aliyah Deimeke volunteered to write the report to council on the Youth Leadership Seminar and Member Edie Pringle volunteered to present the report.

Next Year’s Goals – By April 2022, your Council must solidify 2-4 goals for your successors. Refer to your Council’s mission statement. Finalize these goals with Vice-Chair Sevor.
