Event Planning
Committee members are in charge of the planning and execution of events. The committee will be attentive to keeping event expenses minimal and creative in planning. The event planning committee will work closely with the sponsorship committee to coordinate and secure auction items for the events.

Committee members are responsible for creating effective outreach initiatives to promote YAB events and build database of young professionals. This includes utilizing social media platforms and other marketing tools to communicate details. Ex: Facebook- profile banner photo, event invite, status update, etc.

The sponsorship committee is entirely focused on bringing in event sponsorships, and/ or donated items. This committee is composed of business-minded advocates of KidsTLC who will work to introduce new sponsors to KidsTLC.

Community Development
The community development committee will be in charge of securing solid community connections and networking opportunities for the Young Advisory Board and for KidsTLC. The committee will engage local businesses in an effort to create a relationship that will be a benefit to the agency as well as meet the community outreach goals of the business. They will be focusing on brand awareness while securing future financial donations as well as In-Kind donations from local business and individuals interested in KidsTLC. The committee will also be responsible for securing attendees for KidsTLC events.
