Jack and James agree to swap roles
At tonight’s monthly meeting Jack and James asked the committee for permission to swap roles. In this unusual and innovative switch, Jack would become chair and James would become vice-chair. James, who has chaired the Youth Council for the last three years – and is the longest standing chair of Dundee Youth Council to date, believes this will give Jack the opportunity to gain experience chairing meetings and will help provide him opportunities for public speaking. James, who will become vice-chair, will use this new role to focus on youth councillor development and a well-needed recruitment project between October 2017 and March 2018.
The committee approved this request and this will take effect at a handover at the October meeting.
