35 Macra members to receive leadership awards

Some 35 Macra members from across the country will receive Leadership Distinction Awards at a special awards ceremony as part of County Officer Training on the August 29.

The training will take place in the Radisson Blu, Limerick, over the weekend of the August 29 and 30.

Macra National President, Seán Finan, said that the Leadership Distinction Awards are an opportunity for Macra to recognise its fantastic, enthusiastic leaders at county level.

“These young people are having a big impact on their counties, the local community and the national organisation. Congratulations to each and every one,” he said.

A Gold Award is the highest level that can be secured by a Macra na Feirme County Officer, and makes that person eligible to be considered for a Macra National Leadership Award or to participate as a Macra representative on a number of overseas seminars including the European Rally for rural young people.

Macra Club of the Year

Entries are now closed for the Macra Club of the Year competition.

The aim of the competition is to recognise and reward the hard work and commitment of clubs and members, Macra said.

Six clubs are selected to go forward to the national final, which will take place at this year’s Annual Conference in Cork over the October bank holiday weekend, it said.
