Welcome

Welcome to the website for the 18th Annual Texas Youth Advisory Commission (YAC) Summit! The Texas Municipal League (TML) and the City of Cedar Hill are excited for this two-day statewide event overflowing with life lessons, practical advice, team-building exercises, and, of course, laughter!

What is the YAC Summit?
The 18th Annual YAC Summit is a two-day statewide event sponsored by the Texas Municipal League and hosted by the City of Cedar Hill Mayor’s Teen Council  and the Law Enforcement Advisory Development (L.E.A.D). The 2018 Summit will be held on February 17-18, 2018, at Cedar Hill’s Mt. Lebanon Retreat and Conference Center. This year’s theme is “Gain and Sustain” and will focus on leadership and sustainability.

Summit Purpose
The Youth Advisory Commission (YAC) Summit is an opportunity for cities, schools, and community youth groups to share the experiences of their programs and the positive impact that the programs have had locally. The summit is organized to promote a fun environment for youth and city leaders to learn from and work with each other. Adults and students will leave with a greater appreciation of their own programs and new ideas to move their group forward in coming years.

If your city doesn’t have a YAC, you are invited to attend the summit and learn more about how a YAC can help your city. This summit provides excellent networking opportunities with leaders from established YACs.

Why Should Our City Attend?
This is the chance for your YAC members to show off their successes from the past year, share their goals for the coming year, hear from inspirational speakers, and network with other YACs. The summit is a great way to inspire your future leaders to transform their surroundings and perspective to achieve their goals and aspirations.
