In order to allow as many IHI members as possible to air their views on how the sport should be structured at national level, I will facilitate two open meeting over the coming weeks: * 8pm Wednesday 9 August at the Fairways Hotel and Conference Centre, Dublin Road, Dundalk (for teams that have participated in the Eastern Conference)
* Cork (for all IHC teams/individuals) - TBC with IHC (but no later than 14 August)
The purpose of these meetings is to allow people to share their views on the way the sport has been structured and managed at a national level (including international trips & national teams) over recent years and to canvass for ideas as to how the existing structure could be improved. It is envisaged that the feedback and comments received at these meetings will form the basis upon which the 2006/07 season will be structured.
Following the meetings, it is intended that the schedule for the 2006/07 season will be made available no later than Friday 8 of September. (Please note that schedules and formats for regional and local leagues are the responsibility of the regional/local organisers e.g. IHC and Eastern Conference).
Anybody who is interested in participating in these meetings, and/or in running/managing leagues/competitions/national teams, and/or taking minor (but no less essential) roles in the day to day activities of our sport, is encouraged to attend these meetings.
Please find attached an agenda that will be used at both meetings.
