2020 Ulster GAA Club Officer Training Programme

December 6th, 2019

Ulster GAA has launched its plans for 2020 Club Officer Training which is set to take place in January for all club officers across Ulster’s nine counties.

This year, Ulster GAA is aligning with the National Leadership Programme.  This will streamline all training for club officers to minimise the demands on the time of club volunteers, while still providing high quality essential training to empower club officers in their roles going forward in 2020.

The training will be delivered across four clusters and will include two training sessions.  The first session is role specific training for people new to their roles in 2020 or any officer wishing to update their skills and knowledge.  The second session is topic specific workshops which will deal with key issues facing GAA clubs in 2020 open to all Club Officers/Volunteers.

All clubs are encouraged to ensure that their club is represented at all these training sessions.
