YCC passes two amendments to its constitution

Wednesday, May 23, 2012

During the group's last meeting of the school year, the Northview High School Youth for the Community Committee (YCC) passed two amendments to its constitution by unanimous vote.

According to YCC President Matthew Aselage, the group's third amendment to its constitution establishes election protocol in an effort to make election cycles run more efficiently.

The fourth amendment added a new executive position by establishing a Secretary of Congress position, which will aide committee organization.

Aselage said the candidate will be selected at the beginning of the 2012-13 school year.

Meanwhile, the YCC approved a measure to host a parade.

Committee officials said they are continuing investigations to make it an annual event.

"The funds raised from this event will, for the first year, be divided," Aselage said.

He added the club will allocate 70 percent of the proceeds from the first year to Serving on the Streets, while 30 percent of the money will go to the club's revenue.

"Each year after the first, a Community Events Planning Group must decide where the funds raised from the event will go," Aselage said. "A planning group will be in charge of every decision pertaining to this event." The organization and planning for the parade will resume in the fall.

In addition, YCC Representative Brandon Rost (for the 18-20-year-old age group) turned in his resignation notice.

"I wish I could be here for more meetings, but I will be unable to do so because I will be attending IU," Rost said during his resignation speech.

Officials said his seat will remain vacant until the next election process.
