Guide to getting involved in YRes

1. Introduction

National YRes launch 2015It’s a really exciting time to be part of YRes. After our national launch at the Resolution Conference in 2015, YRes has gone from strength to strength. We have formed a National YRes Committee, and are seeing more and more engagement from YRes members across the country, both with their local committees and also at a national level.

This information has been prepared by the National YRes Committee, with the aim of helping regional YRes committees to ensure that they are running effectively and have the best possible resources and guidance available to them.

All members of the National YRes Committee are involved in YRes regionally and sit on committees around the country.

Over the last couple of years, we have gathered information from numerous regional YRes committees, from well-established groups to those who are just being formed, and from large and small regions alike, to understand what it is that makes a YRes group successful.
