As part of our on-going support to Rowing Ireland Affiliated clubs we intend to run a series of Webinars geared at “Good Club Governance

The first of these webinars will be with Sarah O’ Shea, Sarah is an expert in club/committee governance and she will focus the webinar on what is, best practice for Rowing clubs in terms of governance documentation and procedures. This will be a unique opportunity for clubs to establish if their current procedures and documentation is relevant, factual and current. The everchanging face of good club governance challenges all new and established clubs to ensure that their Directors, Committees, Coaches and members are effectively protected.

Remember the date, Wednesday the 24th of March at 7 pm, Rowing Ireland “Club Governance webinar series”
