The Management Commitee

Frances O'Brien Dungarven, Jackie Quinn NCW, Emer Duffy Ravensdale, Catherine Dunleavy Enniscorthy.
Anna Tolan Ballina, Catherine Ryan Cahir, Pamela Henry Vice Chairman Ravensdale, David Curran Treasurer Fethard, Josephine Lynch Portumna, Maire Ni Bhraoin Secretary Raheny, and Dan Loughrey Ramelton.
The organisations affairs are directed by the management committee which comprises of Chairman,Vice Chairman, Treasurer, Secretary and nine Regional Representatives who represent the branch markets, one of whom is the Vice Chairman. We no longer have an ICA representative or any general members but retain the option to co-opt two members if needed.

The committee meet at least five times a year in Head Office, our last meeting was on 08/08/2011. Due to area meetings we will not meet again until November but we keep in regular contact and further meetings are arranged as necessary.

I have mentioned in a previous post that we need some new Regional Representatives as there are four vacancies coming up. The Regional Representative is an important role in the organisation, creating a human link between the markets and the management committee.

The aims are to
1.        To improve relations with our markets.
2.        To anticipate and identify difficulties within markets.
3.        To provide continuous support.

This can be done by
1.        Regular communication by visits, phone, email.
2.        Maintaining good relations with the members.
3.        Keeping markets up to date with the latest on workshops, upcoming events and relevant news.

Effective communication is a two way street, we the Management Committee need members input.
