Yesterday I sat in on my new committee’s meeting, the Youth Council. I had been on the marketing and communications committee, but since the USHJA’s inception, the marketing staff at the USHJA’s headquarters has grown to six. So the powers-that-be decided it would be best to reassign those of us on the M&C Committee to various other committees that could make use of our marketing skills.
The feedback from the meeting was that it was an active, lively discussion. Having never attended a Youth Council meeting before, I had nothing to compare it to. It was great to meet everyone face-to-face, and I volunteered to write an article regarding the youth scholarship. I’ll keep you posted when that comes out.
Overall, the group is made up of enthusiastic supporters of youth in our organization, understanding they are the future of our sport. I look forward to working with them!
