Texas Youth Advisory Commission Summit, February 22-23, 2014, Rockwall

The 14th Annual Texas Youth Advisory Commission (YAC) Summit is a two-day, statewide event hosted by the City of Rockwall and sponsored by the Texas Municipal League. While the summit has a very serious mission of educating, inspiring, and empowering, it is also built for fun. Attendees will walk away with building blocks for future success thanks to a schedule overflowing with life lessons, practical advice, team-building exercises, and, of course, laughter.


Don't have a YAC but are interested in finding out what one can do for your city? Join us at the summit. Several of our active YAC groups got their start at a YAC summit. The summits are a great way to network with other adult and youth leaders.


Early registration is only $50 per attendee. For more information and to register, visit
