3.) Here's a recap of the reminders we reviewed yesterday:
Bill Hearing Night Reminders:
Date and Location
Bill Hearing Night is Wednesday, November 30 and will be held in the Board Room (accessed via the lower parking lot)
Delegates must arrive by 6pm. Parents and guests should be invited to arrive at 6:30pm. Plan for the hearing to run until 8pm
Attendance is MANDATORY
You MUST attend in Sac attire. This means professional attire. Young men should wear a suit or dress pants and a collared shirt, tie, and a blazer or a sweater (you must having something covering your shirt, but not merely an overcoat). Don’t forget to wear dress shoes (no casual shoes allowed). Young women should wear a suit or dress, or a skirt (must be knee-length) or dress pants, with a dress shirt or sweater (and also appropriate dress shoes). Young women must wear hosiery with skirts and dress socks with pants (i.e. no bare legs or feet). When in doubt “church attire” may be a useful term of guidance for you. If you are unclear on Sac attire, contact your delegation or an advisor before the meeting.
Bill sponsors should be prepared to present their bills; group members should have planned who will act in a supporting and an opposing role. Successful bill groups will be prepared with questions (supporting and challenging the bill) and answers which evidence your hard work and research over the course of the last few months.
Parents and guests will vote on which bill the delegation will carry to Sac conference. Our delegation is required to bring one bill. In certain circumstances, we may be permitted to bring an additional bill.
After Bill Hearing Night
The bill(s) chosen will need to be in their final form and uploaded to the Y&G website by this Friday, December 2. Bill supplemental material will be due one week later, on December 9. Bill sponsors must be prepared to dedicate additional time outside of the meetings to meet these deadlines. Sponsors unable to do so should withdraw their bills from consideration before Wednesday.
