The Advisory Committee has three working meetings throughout the school year to plan the annual convention and guide such VSCA activities as elections, awards, and programs. Student council members from any VSCA member schools are eligible to apply to serve on this statewide committee.
Student leaders from any member school may apply to serve as appointed members of the VSCA Advisory Committee. Members of the Advisory Committee plan the annual convention and conduct such business of the association as selecting the state service project, determining award winners, and conducting election of officers.
Applicants must apply by May 1 using the online application (or go to https://bit.ly/vscaadvisoryapp) and be approved by their home school adviser to serve on the committee. To be recognized at convention, committee members are expected to attend at least two of the three Saturday meetings each year as well as the annual Convention, which is usually held in mid-March. Meeting dates for the 2023-24 school year have been set for:
September 16 at Buckingham County HS (10:00am - 2:00pm)
November 18 at Orange County HS (10:00am - 2:00pm)
February 3 at Courtland HS (10:00am - 2:00pm)
Anyone planning to serve as a state officer or region rep must have served on the Advisory Committee prior to running for office.
