NFYFC is searching for YFC members to represent their counties' views on agricultural and rural issues. 

Are you passionate about agriculture and all things rural within your YFC? Do you want to ensure all YFC voices are heard? If your answer is ‘yes’, ask your county organiser to propose you as your county’s agricultural and rural link representative for the new YFC year.  You’ll join a network of fellow YFC members to share news, views and events.

What does this involve?

NFYFC invites your county office to nominate a county ‘AGRI link’ representative for the new YFC year in September who has the opportunity to:

  • Liaise directly with NFYFC’s Agriculture & Rural Issues (AGRI) department
  • Liaise with your AGRI Area representative 
  • Keep in touch with agricultural and rural issues in your county
  • Instigate (with help from NFYFC/county staff & officers) agricultural/rural discussion       groups or events
  • Link directly with relevant agricultural/rural organisations at a county level and find ideas and contacts within the NFYFC Source
  • Discuss national steering group work throughout your county and gain feedback from members
  • Feedback information, ideas and concerns to NFYFC    
  • Take part in NFYFC research for topics concerning young people and rural life
  • Be aware of training, resources and future events for YFC members

In return, AGRI members and staff will endeavour to:

  • Provide input to national and regional events to help AGRI link representatives in their roles
  • Supply information to link representatives to support their activities
  • Support link representatives with rural and agricultural discussion groups, workshops or training
  • Assist with relevant research projects pertinent for young people and rural life

This role plays a key part in the effectiveness of ensuring that all YFC members’ voices are heard and should be enjoyable and fulfilling for anyone who has an interest in agriculture and rural issues.

You can contact the NFYFC AGRI department on 024 76 857213 or email Sarah Palmer for further help or advice.
