Help! Are you a CAMRA member aged under 30?
If yes, would you be willing to help out the Region by working as the Regional Young Persons Membership Co-Ordinator. You do not have to be active within your branch at the present time, but it helps!

Role: to get younger real ale lovers to have fun together and to promote our glorious and diverse real ales amongst other young people, take over CAMRA and then rule the world, and eventually replace us as the old fogies!!!
