We answer to you

Because our members own the society - not us, not shareholders - it’s only right that you get a say in how we run things

Bank or building society – the difference is you

Being a member of a building society means you own it. You’ve got the power. And it means you get a say in how we run things and help shape our future – like voting in our Annual General Meeting, or going to one of our ‘Your Time to Talk’ member events.



What are ‘Your Time to Talk' events?

These events are your opportunity to hear first-hand how we're looking after your interests, what we offer and our future plans. It’s also a chance to chat with our senior management team and branch colleagues about what is important to you. 

We hold seminars at the events on topics chosen by members, like 'Online Security and Preventing Fraud'. You can watch the video here.


Come have your say

We’ll be holding more Your Time to Talk events at the following locations and we'd love to see you there.

  • Newcastle - March
  • Leeds - May
  • Birmingham - August
  • London - November 

If you’d like to register for any of the events simply email your name, postcode and location preference to members@ybs.co.uk and we'll in touch with more information.
