Our annual general meeting will be held next Wednesday 28th March at 7.30 in the Greenville Arms Hotel, Mullingar. Please send along as many delegates as you like but only 2 may vote in elections etc.
We have 2 guest speakers
1 Liam Gavin of Inland Fisheries Ireland will give a presentation on the National Strategy for Angling Development 2015-2020. There are substantial grants available for works of a capital nature carried out by clubs. GRANTS OF 100PC of the total cost are available. Grant aided work would include
- Clearing and fencing along rivers/lakes to improve access
- Angling stands/stiles, boat slips
- Car parks, club houses etc.
I.F.I. staff will fully advise clubs on their proposals and help them with all the paperwork. IFI have appointed 5 officers to travel around the country to inform and assist clubs.
2. Bob Seaword of the Angling Council of Ireland will also give an important presentation. He will talk on a number of issues
a - It is now a legal requirement that club youth officers are Garda vetted. There is a huge amount of new legislation now in place to safeguard young anglers and vulnerable adults. There are substantial fines for non compliance on a wide range issues. Club officers really need to be fully aware of their obligations under all the new regulations.
b – Coaching – We will be getting back into ongoing coaching courses.
c – Health and safety is another big area where club officers need to protect themselves.
Some of the above are very serious issues which could have a major impact on your club so we strongly request that you do your best to get delegates along.
If your club is not I.F.P.A.C. affiliated and you would like to attend please let us know. Phone John on 086 6057306.
