AGM 17: NFYFC to become recognised charity #AGM

The structure has changed to give the institution its own rights and independence, the passing of the motion meaning NFYFC will have more power when making legal decisions.

 

It has been passed after lots of discussion surrounding the need for NFYFC to follow suit of clubs and county bodies, which already carry a charity status.

 

Ed Ford, Chairman of NFYFC, noted how this transition will help the organisation and its members get ahead, as government would have required the motion to take place in a few years nevertheless.

Mr Ford said: “This is an important time for us, and this change will help the federation build a stronger structure for current members and future generations.”

 

Laura Elliot of Glamorgan YFC said it would help the institution regulate itself in a more effective and appropriate manor.

 

Ms Elliot said: “This is an exciting time for us all. We can take advantage of being a charity much like county clubs already do, meaning a better young farmer future for all.”

 

The crowd passed the motion with a 100 per cent vote, meaning the NFYFC now beings the process of becoming a charity organisation.
