Membership & Governance Review

You may have read in recent editions of YHA News that our group has been tasked by National Board to undertake a membership and governance review.

We wish to propose a governance model that reflects YHA today and into the future; a model that considers the role of membership in YHA’s governance processes. We would like to hear your thoughts, so seek your feedback by Friday 9 November 2018 - please have a read of this document & this presentation.

Please note, this is our first step and once we have your initial feedback we will draft a more formal consultation document for your further review.

2018 Elections

At the AGM on Saturday the election results were announced with Hayley Groves and Mark Ebrey being the successful Board candidatesThe Board currently has a vacancy for a co-opted position, which it will look to fill in due course. Learn about the National Board

We also bade farewell to both Kevin Brewer and Michael Sheehan who had provided a number of years of valuable service to YHA and its governance.

No nominations were received for Honorary Vice-President. The Constitution allows for Honorary Vice-President vacancies to be filled by invitation from National Board through until the next AGM.

Service and Merit Awards

Each year YHA formally recognises those members who have volunteered their time to the organisation by presenting service and merit awards at the AGM. Nominations for these awards may be made by National Board, a Branch Committee, a Members Group, a group of six senior financial members, or the Awards Committee.

Honorary Life Membership
May be awarded to persons (who need not be members) who have made an exceptional voluntary contribution to YHA. This contribution would generally be at a national level, for the benefit of the organisation as a whole, and usually over an extended period of time.

This year a posthumous Honorary Life Membership was awarded to John Hammond.
