The Board of Directors

The Association is made up of an Executive and Board of Directors

AYC elects its executive every two years during its Annual General Meeting.  Any elected official may run for a position on the Executive.

AYC’s Board of Directors is comprised of representatives appointed from all of its member communities, with the exception of the City of Whitehorse which has two representatives. 

Yukon unincorporated areas sit as Associate Members in the Association.  These members bring along a valuable insight to the more rural concerns of the Territory.  AYC advocates on their behalf, however they do not have an official vote in AYC business.
