About the Board of Management

All officers including the Chief Executive are volunteers. Any help to share the burden of organising regional competitions will be welcomed. The Board of Management can fill vacancies in the Board of Management that remain after an annual general meeting, or which arise in the course of a year, and appoint officers or sub-committees as necessary to expedite the affairs of the union. Currently three board members carry out dual mangement board functions: the Chairman is an ECF delegate; the Publicity Director is also the Webmaster; and Grading Director is also the Controller for thee Inter-counties competitions. Currently the board meets once yearly and most issues arising during the year are dealt with by e-mail and telephone consultation. At general meetings, each member of the board has a single vote and each county 4 votes, which may be exercised by proxy or by a single county delegate.
