Let’s Strike Up the Band!!

As hard as it is to believe, it is time to get your student council orchestra back together and dig in to get things off to an allegro start with a good beat from the very beginning. With this year’s theme “Conduct the Leadership Symphony”, you should have no treble getting a great student council movement going at your school!

All IAJHSC Adult Directors are actively looking for workshop hosts for the coming year. Get in tune with the music and help set a great leadership tone for your district by volunteering to host either a fall or mid-year workshop at your school. All the instruments needed to do this can be found on the website and your Adult District Director is more than happy to help your council conduct a great experience for the other members of your district.

A major event coming up quickly is the annual Advisors’ Leadership Workshop. Natural-ly you will want to get your year off to a good start so that it doesn’t fall flat!! The workshop will be held on September 19th and 20th at Eastland Suites & Conference Center in Bloomington, IL. Be sure to register for this great opportunity to work your way toward being a virtuoso as you help your council conduct their projects and activities this year. Information about the workshop, our speaker, and the registration form can be found here on the website. Pitch the idea to your administration and get signed up to attend so you can score some notes and networking connections to help you have a wonderful student council year that will bring you to a fantastic finale next May!

At the Fall Executive Board Meeting following the Advisors’ Leadership Workshop, one of the major business items is for the board to select the next State Service Project. Each District Representative is hoping to score a victory by having her/his project chosen. We will be announcing the results as soon as we know. Check the website often for all the details so you aren’t in dis-chord when it comes to fundraising for this worthy cause.

Well, that’s it for now. Be sure to contact your Adult Directors for the latest on IAJHSC events. Be sure to let her/him know if you have any concerns to be brought before the board at the fall meeting.

Until later … Good luck with your new council ensemble as you “Conduct the Leadership Symphony!”
