Meeting Outline

Before each meeting, the officers of the YAC must create an agenda to outline the meeting’s events. They must also select one officer to run the meeting and another to take notes on minutes. The agenda should be used as a starting place for each meeting, but open forum discussion is also encouraged.

At the beginning of every YAC meeting, each officer must report important details and information from their respective government body meetings. It is also encouraged to alternate invitations to members of these government bodies to join the youth caucus meetings. 

After each YAC meeting, minutes must be made available to the entire school body. These minutes are suggested to be attached to a YAC webpage.
