Cruising Association of Ireland

Committee members wanted

A new committee will be elected at the AGM in March, just two months away. Please consider playing a part in running the organisation.

I’ll step down as Commodore, making way for John Murphy who has been serving as Vice Commodore for two years. By convention the Vice Commodore elected this year will take over as Commodore in 2026 when John’s term ends.

To manage events and meetings, look after membership and financial records, and generally steer the Association to fulfil its objectives takes a fair bit of work. The load is shared by a dozen people in our main committee, though, so individual contributions aren’t overwhelming.

Committee members are expected to attend most of the monthly meetings (often using Zoom), help out with events and contribute to discussions about policy.

A couple of members have already offered to join the committee, but we could do with more. For example, we’re looking for someone to administer our membership records, and someone to organise shoreside activities.

If you can spare a little time and energy and are ready to help keep this community going, please talk to me or one of the committee members about standing for election next year.
