There are  many positions open to get involved with YPAC here in Calgary.  If you are interested in dealing with sponsorships, membership, events coordination, communications, website coordination, university laison, or becoming the lead contact for YPAC in Edmonton, please email YPAC @ info@ypacanada.com and express your intention to run for position within YPAC.  The Executive Committee will contact you by December 6, 2013 to formally indicate where you will fit in the YPAC Committee.
