Following the Rowing Ireland AGM in May 2023 we are seeking expressions of interest from members of affiliated clubs to fill seven sub-committees and to develop extended volunteer panels to support the work of these committees. Committee’s are integral to the workings of Rowing Ireland and we would be thrilled to have new members of our rowing family involved in our committee’s that are integral to our sport. Being on a committee gives you great skills to bring back to your club and a greater understanding of our sport.

Assistance has been sought from clubs in promoting this process to its membership. Applications will be accepted directly from the interested individuals and a separate nomination from your home club is not required. 

Sub Committees

The following are the areas in which Sub Committees are being filled:

  1. Domestic events (knowledge of events systems and running events)
  2. Umpire (qualified R.I umpire is required)
  3. Commercial (Commercial/sponsorship/revenue and PR acumen required)
  4. HP (knowledge of the HP system in Ireland required)
