Sydney Sefton

Club: Airdrie Hawks

Years in JFW: 3

Why I want to be part of this: I would like to be on the committee because I think that this year I have a good understanding of how things work around the camp. I believe that I will be able to bring some good ideas to the conference, such as having one of the sessions kind of being based off of the conference's theme. If it was mystery it could be a scavenger hunt with a whole bunch of things around the camp with directions to each clue (I would also volunteer to run that session because it sounds like a lot of fun to do that even if it's just for one time bloc). I feel that by being on the committee I am able to help lots of the new A/C's to the conference as I was one last year and know how stressful that was. I love to do planning things of any sort I think that it's a lot of fun to do.
