Sign up for young professionals' forum

Sign up for November YPN forum

Prospect is encouraging young members to sign up for its first young professionals' forum in November.

The two day/one night event will be held at Quorn Grange in Leicestershire on Sunday 23 and Monday 24 November, with a social event on the Sunday night.

Participants will discuss:

  • setting up and promoting branch-based networks for young professionals
  • young members’ training needs
  • how the union can help branches to engage young people
  • how to promote Prospect membership and activity with young people
  • a social media strategy for young members and
  • a draft Prospect strategy for young members.

The forum will also set up a YPN committee to help drive this work forward.

It will meet four times a year and have eight members, including four officer roles: secretary, chairperson, vice chairperson and a communications officer.

Please register your interest in the event or being on the committee with Tom Sidwell Prospect’s new full-time organiser based in Lutterworth. Tom will be taking main responsibility for the young professionals’ network.

Email him at and book early to avoid disappointment. If there are more requests than places, we will allocate them to ensure a fair gender and geographical balance.
