Gaelic Life Ulster GAA Volunteer Development Programme 2014

November 27th, 2013


The New Year will see the return of GAA Officer Training workshops across Ulster to inform club and county officers of details around latest issues and also to prepare club officers for their roles in 2014.  Over the past four years Ulster GAA has been rolling out a comprehensive Officer Training Programme which has proven to be very popular and useful with thousands of club officers participating in training across all nine counties of Ulster.

In 2014 there are three aspects to the Officer Training Programme, the first is for County Officers. The County Officer Network will take place on Saturday 11th January. This will be the ideal opportunity for County Officers from across all codes to review areas of work, to raise any issues or concerns and to help plan for the future.

The second element of Ulster GAA’s Officer Training Programme is training for all new club officers.  This will be a one-off Provincial training session to ensure all GAA volunteers new to roles in 2014 will have the necessary information and skills.  This session is also a good networking session where GAA officials get the opportunity to meet with volunteers from other clubs in the same role.  The Club Officer Training for NEW Officers take place on Saturday 18th January.

Finally, a Club Officer Development Course will once again be held in every county in Ulster to ensure club officers have all necessary information for their roles and tasks in 2014.  This is an important course and is required for Club Maith accreditation.  The half-day session aims to provide club officers with all essential information for the year ahead.
