There are many options open to you and check them out for further for further training Post Leaving Certificate courses and other relevant information that may be of some benefit to you at this time.
Summer has arrived and many of you will be putting the final touches to festivals and events. We see the stylish silage bales are starting to appear in Drumshanbo. Please don’t forget to let us know about them and we’ll share with everyone else. Bredagh Old School are having their Annual Barbecue tonight and the Stoney Woods Festival takes place in Kiltyclogher next weekend and that’s just what we know about. See Events for more detail.
We’ve heard plenty about the cost of insurance for events or just the normal operations of your community group. This has been a theme across the country so all the PPNs have got together and issued a survey on your experience of insurance for community groups. It only takes about 4 minutes to complete and the findings will be used to feed into national discussions on the issue. Please take the time to have your say. See Consultations.
PPN Re-registration and Voting
When your group registered, two contacts were sought. When an official vote is required for elections or a significant decision, one of these designated contacts can vote. As Leitrim PPN finishes its fifth year some committees have finished their terms and there are other natural vacancies. Nominations for vacant posts will be sought and elections will be held in Autumn 2019. In preparation for that and as a general tidy-up of contacts we will be getting in touch asking you to Re-register. Contact will be made by email and/or letter and we will follow up with phone calls. We will start getting in touch from 8th July.
