At this residential we will be electing 12 members onto our new Executive Committee for the period 2016-2018. To stand or vote in this election you will need to be aged 11-25 and a member of NIYF. Further details about the elections can be found on our website, on our Facebook page, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for nominations is the 1st of September at 12 noon.
We will also be having a bit of craic with some fun activities on the Friday evening, as well as workshops on Saturday afternoon focussed on youth issues and youth policy. At these workshops we will be looking to find out what the key issues are for young people and will then feed this into regional planning for the youth service.
Meals will be provided and there will be a bus leaving from NIYF HQ (68 Berry Street, BT1 1FJ) at 4:30pm on Friday the 30th of September going to Sheep Island View. There will also be a bus returning to Belfast to arrive at NIYF HQ for approx. 5:30pm on Saturday the 1st of October.
It will also be possible to attend only the Saturday (AGM) portion of the residential if you do not want to or cannot do the overnight stay. Transport for those taking up this option will leave from NIYF HQ at 8:30am on Saturday morning.
