What Does It Do?
One of the first committees that you may be elected to is the Yorkshire Federation of Young Farmers’ Clubs Executive Committee. An "exec rep" shares the responsibility for the smooth running and the decision making of the federation. The County Chairman, who is elected from the members of the committee, leads this committee. The committee normally meets 4 times a year to receive reports from Sub Committees and Districts and approve or amend (if necessary) the decisions taken by the sub-committees.
Who Is On The Committee?
This committee is formed as follows:
- 2 members of each Club.
- 4 members of each District (these members should not already be on from Clubs)
- Members co-opted onto the committee usually at the AGM.
There totalling 161 voting members. In addition Life Members, Vice Presidents and co-options from outside bodies may attend, but cannot vote.
Separate committees meet throughout the year to plan and organise specific parts of the organisation. These are:
- Finance and General Purposes Committee
- Activities Committee
- Development and Marketing Committee
At your District AGM two members will be elected to each of the these committees. As these committees are really sub-committees of the Executive Committee the members elected must be reps on the Executive Committee.
