December 20th, 2018

Ulster GAA has announced details of its 2019 Volunteer Development Pathway for all club officers across Ulster to help develop capacity of clubs in 2019 across key issues.

The Training Programme commences on Saturday 5th January 2019 at Holy Trinity College, Cookstown with the Club Officer Induction Award. This Provincial training course is designed for volunteers NEW to their role in 2019 across the following five key club executive roles: Registrar (Or whoever in charge of registering members), Children’s Officer, Coaching Officer, Development Officer and Cultural Officer. Demand is always high for this Club Officer Induction Award and clubs are urged to register for places as soon as possible at the following link: www.ulster.gaa.ie/VolunteerDevelopment2019
