Society AGM 2023 Report

Saturday 10th June 2023 at 1:50 PM

The Society A.G.M. for 2023 was held on Thursday 8th June in D'Gaff in Castlerea. There was a strong turnout for what was the Society's first in-person AGM in over 4 years!

Many topics were discussed on the night, with many good points raised and suggestions adopted for the year ahead. Subjects discussed included our show venue, show dates, production team, fundraising and communications, among others. The outgoing President, Christy Glynn, and the outgoing Chairperson, Julie Mannion, were both commended for their service to the Society over a very difficult few years.

The choice of show for 2024 was also announced (more on that elsewhere soon!).

The following committee and officers were elected for the year ahead:

Vice-Chariperson: Clare Kelly
