Our Younger Members are part of a lively social scene for the under 35s. They are organised in part by the club, but at the helm are a dedicated committee made up of younger members who have got involved with various parts of the Royal Over-Seas League, whether it’s helping at events or sitting on Central Council. 

The Committee exists to be both the voice of the club’s younger members and a conduit through which the younger members may learn about the club’s ethos and activities. Its focus is to ensure that younger members make the most of their ROSL membership. There are currently five main roles within the Committee: Chairperson, Secretary, Inter-Club representatives and a Commonwealth Liaison, but two still to fill. The voting for two Ordinary Members is open until Monday 20 November, so if you haven't yet stated your preference, you can vote here. You should have already received the login details via email, but if you would like them to be resent, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
