National Young Members' Committee Officer Nominations 2019

The National Young Members’ Network is the voice of young workers in PCS. The work of the network is co-ordinated and supported by the National Young Members’ Committee. The committee advise, inform and support the work of branches, groups, regional committees and the NEC on young members’ issues.

The officers of the committee are elected annually at the Young Members’ seminar. To this end we are seeking nominations for the officer posts from young members across PCS and young members are asked to complete an online nomination form or if you require the briefing and/or nomination form in any other format please contact the Equality Department.

Branch secretaries have been asked to circulate this information widely to young members, particularly those from under-represented groups and encourage them to participate in the democratic process and return nominations. The closing date for nominations is 12 noon on 4 September 2019.

Contact the National Young Members’ Organiser Julie Young if you need further information.
