Report

BACKGROUND

At the beginning of each term, the Youth Commission appoints a Chair to facilitate the monthly meetings and a Vice Chair to serve in the role of meeting facilitator in the event the Chair is unavailable. The role of the Chair is to facilitate monthly meetings, speak at City Council meetings when necessary, and work with Staff Liaison on preparing the agenda. The role of the Vice Chair is to fulfill the role of the responsibilities of the Chair when the Chair is not available.

 

DISCUSSION

The Youth Commission may nominate Youth Commissioners for the position of Chair or Vice Chair. The individuals nominated can either accept or decline the nomination.  Commissioners will then vote for candidates for the roles of Chair and Vice Chair. The Commissioner receiving the most votes for each position will assume the role and responsibilities for the 2021-2022 term.
