It leads varying sub-committees such as the Local Emergency Action Plan (LEAP) and Plantings committees, and is the central body in assisting the town’s various clubs and organisations in achieving their short and long term goals. It acts as facilitator and liaison with Latrobe City Council, and it is an incorporated group (A003942K) which is structured in line with Model Rules. The Committee of Management is structured with a President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer, as well as various members. Three committee members fill the positions of Public Officer, Newsletter Editor and Australia Day Representative.

YNAG conducts monthly meetings in the front room of Monash Hall, Reserve Street Yallourn North. The meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month starting at 7.00pm, sans January. All members of the community are welcome and encouraged to attend to assist, or to just share local concerns. Meetings are supported with representatives from Latrobe City Council often attending, and from time to time our local Member of Parliament.
