RSL NSW establishes Young Veterans Committee

A new body has been established to directly advise the RSL NSW Board on matters impacting young veterans.

The RSL NSW Young Veterans Committee will be focused on engaging with young veterans not yet participating in the League to understand how the League, through its sub-Branch network, can better cater to their needs and attract them to participate.

According to the Committee Charter, its members will bring their experience and expertise in advocating for young veterans and their families, be well versed in the entitlements and provisions provided to Veterans and Families by the Department of Veterans’ Affairs, and have a good understanding of the ex-service organisation (ESO) landscape within NSW.

In forming the Committee, consideration will be given to diversity of membership in relation to age, gender, and geographical location so that the Committee can accurately represent the target cohort and execute its prescribed responsibilities.

Existing members, and veterans who wish to join RSL NSW, are invited to join the Committee by expressing their interest in writing, together with a copy of their CV, to RSL NSW Chief Executive Officer Jon Black via support@rslnsw.org.au.
