Registration We have wrote to Regions (Regional Sec, REO and NEF) calling for 6 delegates (19 July) We then went further to offer template text to send to all young members in their respective regions (19 July)
Utilising Registration Case study: GMB YOUNG LONDON The Regional Equality Organiser (REO) emailed and wrote out to all young members in their region calling for prospective delegates to the summit. Over 12 members applied. The REO wrote to prospective delegates inviting them to a meeting to determine, by vote, who the final 6 delegates would be at a meeting on Wednesday 9 October at 6.30pm. REO agreed with REF that 50% of delegates must be Women. All regional young members will be invited to this meeting. At the meeting we will then re-establish a regional young members’ network with a Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary and Assistant Secretary and hear a report from the regional TUC’s Young Workers’ network and NEF Young Members’ representative.
