How to Intent & Register

Advisors will be given an account on our Online Community where they will complete the following steps for KYA Registration. If you do not have an account, please contact your Regional Staff Member:

1. Add Students to School Roster
Once you have received your login to the community, you’ll need to enter in the names (first and last, as well as preferred name if needed) and personal email addresses for your students. Each student will then receive an email with a link to the Delegate Info Form, which they must submit to finish the process. Students who have not yet completed the Info Form will be indicated on your roster.

2. Student YMCA Membership (Optional)
We highly encourage all of our schools to become official Student YMCA Chapters by completing the membership process in the online community:

  • Only Student YMCA Chapters with 100% delegation membership can have Candidates for Presiding Officer at KYA and KUNA.

3. Intent for KYA
Submit an Intent Form for KYA through the online community to reserve your school’s space at KYA. Note for 2017: If you submitted an intent form for KYA 2017, please verify that we have entered your intent info correctly.

4. Begin KYA Registration
Once your KYA Intent has been approved and registration has opened, Advisors can begin the KYA Registration process through the online community. The registration process will save as you go, so you can complete your registration over several days if needed.
