Young Ambassador Elect 2019

The role of the Young Ambassador is to act as an ambassador for the Welsh Breeds and the Society, to promote its’ charitable aims and encourage participation of children and young people, to represent existing young members throughout the UK, providing them with a voice and link between all UK and International Associations, Hill Improvement Societies, the President and Trustees.

 

The changes with effect from the 2018 AGM are as follows:

  • - The YA term of Office increases from 12 to 18 months.
  • - The selection of the new YA will be decided in September, taking up office at the Society AGM in April where he/she will take over from the previous YA having had a six month handover.
  • - The six month overlap will enable the new YA to receive feedback from the serving YA, adopting best practice for the forthcoming year and planning itinerary.
  • - A guide setting out responsibilities and duties will provide a framework on which to set goals and organise an itinerary in advance for his/her term on office. This guide is not exhaustive but would include some attendance at select shows and functions, fundraising and report writing. 
  • - Council may also consider qualified/experienced mentor(s) from the board of trustees to work more closely with the YA to provide guidance when needed.
  • - The President-Elect should have input into the selection and interview process for the YA that he/she will be working alongside in the forthcoming year

 

The current Young Ambassador for 2017-2019 is Mr Euros Llys Morgan of the Cwmtawe Stud.

Candidates for YA, between the ages of 17 and 25 years, are now eligible to apply for Young Ambassador Elect and are encouraged to submit a completed application form to the Society’s office following the AGM.
