That’s a wrap on the virtual 2020 Bank of America Youth Excellence Seminar. If you were not able to tune in for the live sessions, no worries! All sessions, workshops and keynote addresses are still available on the virtual YES platform for a limited time.
YES provides a valuable opportunity for youth to connect with one another and learn valuable lessons about leadership.
“Transitioning the seminar to a virtual setting allowed attendees experience the benefits of YES while remaining in the safety of their own homes,” said Katie Reynolds, AQHA director of youth programs. “All AQHYA members and nonmembers, ages 10 to 18, parents and adult leaders were invited to attend this year’s virtual seminar. Participants were given full access to live and pre-recorded leadership sessions, which are now available online for viewing at any time.”
Attendees tuned in to a live keynote address from Amberly Snyder, the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association competitor whose inspirational true story was captured in the 2019 movie “Walk. Ride. Rodeo.” This address, alongside other valuable content, was recorded and available to access through July 20.
AQHYA is a youth leadership organization in which members elect their leadership each year at YES. Delegates elected the 2020-21 AQHYA officer and director leadership team through a digital election process. View the new AQHYA Executive Committee and Board of Directors here.
