Our Committee is formed from volunteers across the railway industry, who work together to operate and govern Young Rail Professionals. The senior roles of the YRP committee are elected annually to form our ‘chair’s office’, which is supported by our appointed executive committee members.

Our regional branch committees have a similar structure to that of the executive, and are ably led by our regional chairs who also sit on the executive committee.

YRP’s executive committee, sub-committees and regional committees meet monthly. Our committee members are governed by our Terms of Reference which sets out the behaviours expected of members of the YRP committee, and the roles are set out in the Committee Roles document.

If you would like to get involved or find out more please email get-involved@youngrailpro.com.
