At the 2003 Congress an tUachtarain Sean Uas O?Ceallaigh made some major changes to committee structures.

The primary aim of this committee is to conduct an audit of each club and assist them in their efforts to address any issues by providing both club and officer training.
To this end Leitrim County Development Committee actively encourage all clubs to participate in this very worthwhile programme.
The recent Seminar attended by all clubs and officers has had a very positive impact with a number of clubs already willing to participate.

Officer Training will form part of this programme and with this in mind this news column will carry the dates for clubs to follow. Also appearing weekly in this column will be an outline of the qualities, duties etc of individual club officers starting this week with An Cathaoirleach.
