Special Congress to hear motions on interim governance structure


The purpose of tomorrow's Special Congress is to vote on motions proposing an interim governance structure for the Association in an emergency situation.

In ordinary circumstances we are bound in all regards by Congress. However, in an emergency situation it means we have no flexibility on things like, for example, redefining competition structures.

This proposal transfers, in exceptional circumstances, the power of Congress to the GAA Management Committee, with strict parameters and safeguards.

This is the means by which the Association will give itself the capacity to respond to the current situation and unless needed for a further period, our structures revert back to the standard model after 12 weeks.

This measure would also be applicable in any future similar emergency.
