“The chamber will now revert to the passage of this Senate Bill.” I heard this phrase repeatedly throughout my several days of meetings at the YMCA North Carolina Youth and Government Conference, aka YAG. I have been a “Yagger” for four years now, and each year I have a different experience. For example, I was a Senate Clerk this year, so I got to experience the conference as a leader. I sat in chambers (formal sessions for bills) all day, so I was able to watch the parliamentary procedure process occur from the stage in front of everyone.
Each year, I learn a little more about current issues in North Carolina, and YAG ends up being a great educational experience in different ways. Some memorable events from this YAG conference were seeing friends I’ve made from freshman year, being honored as a four-year senior, seeing my younger sister become engaged in parliamentary procedure, and watching my friend Fields be inaugurated as governor of the entire conference. Next year, I am definitely going to miss Youth and Government so much that I might just have to join their college staff!
