Campaign for Real Ale

Campaign for Real Ale

Young Members

CAMRA is extremely proud of its hugely diverse membership. Over 160,000 individuals of all ages, backgrounds and both sexes enjoy their CAMRA membership. 11% of the total national membership is aged between 18-30 years old; these are CAMRA's Young Members (YM).

CAMRA set up a Young Members Group (YMG) in 2000 to promote and encourage the drinking of Real Ale among young people (the 18 - 30 age group) by encouraging Young Members and young non-members to join in with the numerous social activities that are organised nationwide, as well as encouraging and supporting Young Members who want to get more involved with CAMRA locally, regionally and nationally. Every young member (aged 18-30) is automatically part of the YMG.

The YMG has a Committee that is made up of 7 younger members who meet four times a year at venues all over the UK to discuss matters that affect Young CAMRA Members. YMG Committee Meetings are taken seriously by CAMRA because visiting Young Members are actively encouraged to add their voice to the meetings. After the Committee Meetings they always have a pub-crawl of the town/city, which are led by local Young Members, because it's not all work, work, work!

If you'd like more information about the YMG, contact the group at camra_ymgc@hotmail.co.uk. The group campaigns on issues affecting Young CAMRA Members and encourages the drinking of Real Ale among young people who may not be CAMRA members.

Young Members are encouraged to join in with numerous social activities, as well as becoming involved in CAMRA at a local, regional and national level. You have the opportunity to shape the future of a growing part of the campaign.
