Clan Young is a Charitable, Educational, & Social Organization Dedicated to Promoting Global Kinship & Scottish Heritage!
Recently the Clan Young Society / Youngs Of Scotland received a message from the Lord Lyon’s office indicating that the Lord Lyon “no longer has confidence that the Young Family is in a position to run a Family Convention in a way that would lead to a result that he could rely upon.” This decision was reached after reviewing the concerns expressed by the Clan Young Society / Youngs of Scotland in the United States. We have invested significant effort and time working with the various Youngs of Scotland organizations worldwide to select and have appointed a commander who would best represent Youngs on behalf of all the independent societies and groups. This goal became increasingly more challenging as the Canadian candidate for commander continued to place his personal interests above those of the entire group.
The Leadership Team of the Clan Young Society / Youngs Of Scotland is disappointed that the issues and concerns regarding the appointment of a commander for the Family of Scottish Youngs have not been resolved. We intend to continue our work to further strengthen relationships, and to foster global collaboration with all Youngs Of Scotland organizations to ensure a positive and equitable Young Family Convention in the future. In the meantime, we continue to dedicate ourselves to ensuring that the Clan Young Society / Youngs Of Scotland becomes the best it can be!
Edward A. Young III
b.1921 / d.2012
The Houourable Court Of The Lord Lyon authorized Edward A. Young III to re-convene Clan Young as an Armigerous Clan. Edward A. Young III is therefore the Convener of Clan Young in perpetuity. Assisting in the re-convening of Clan Young were Past Presidents
Col. Gordon A. Young & Russell A. Smith.
