Role and Function
The PYP Advisory Board is a council of Pensacola business and community leaders who have been selected by the PYP Board of Directors to render advice and guidance directly to the Board. The leaders of PYP feel that it is important to seek the help and advice of those that have come before them, as well as maintain good relations with those individuals in both business and community functions.
The role of an Advisory Board Member does not entail a specific time commitment or delegated assignment.
The Advisory Board is selected based on the leaders’ reputation and track record of business and community involvement. Also, their goals and expectations of PYP should align with those of the PYP Board of Directors.
The main purposes of the Advisory Board are to remain committed to PYP and its Board throughout a one-year term, to render advice and guidance on issues related to PYP’s mission and purpose, and to support the organization and its endeavors.
An Advisory Board Member may be asked to serve consecutive terms; this will be determined and voted on by the PYP Board of Directors. Advisors are always encouraged to attend PYP Board Meetings, as well as all other functions and events with PYP. They are encouraged to take an active role with the Board of Directors, whether through interacting with one Board Member or establishing relationships with all Board Members.
