There is an opportunity to get a number of instructors to sign up as UCDCC instructors. They will have to join UCDCC and provide at least 1 days training in a two year period.

I don't instruct very often but I'm keen to keep up my instructor qualification, as such will join the club to registered with Canoeing Ireland as an instructor.

Familiarize oneself with the Constitution
Get used to forum, lot of useful information, access to previous committee stuff + committee roles
Sync Calendars With Club Calendar for events info+dates
Constitution is the Law but double check with AUC if unsure
Pushing the 20*20 :
•   Women Only Trip + corresponding Footage
•   50% Female representation on stand (stand with footage to catch people’s eyes)
•   This means we can get publicity from Canoeing Ireland

Jacks Suggestions:
•   2* Dún LaoghaireTrips with fun instructors for confidence before Liffey (easy to get instructors)
•   Good communication = CRUCIAL
•   Give feedback / constructive criticism as much as possible to aid positive and creative idea formation
•   Remember there can be a lot of background work going on so be aware that everyone is pulling their own weight

Blathnaid’s Suggestions:
•   Need to submit proof of election.
•   Sign over of bank details will take time and can’t be done in current conditions

Aoife’s Suggestions:
•   Don’t give a price for anything unless it is run by the treasurer
•   Committee need to set the example for paying for trips in time
•   Bank of Ireland Poster is currently in pool area
•   Take a minute at the start of each meeting where updates on accounts and grants are distributed
•   Check sign in sheet for paying for pool
•   Everyone has their own commitment to the grant process. Make sure everything that is assigned to you is done on time. Certain external processes take time such as child protection statement needs external vetting.
•   Get everything in writing from Suzanne as in email correspondence and be aware of her office hours for accessibility. Use official club email.
•   Get a grant meeting in over the Summer

Jonathon’s Suggestions:
•   Get courses organized early with training and development subsidy form
•   Canoeing Ireland membership cards show paddler qualifications but not allowed to have an official database of this due to GDPR.

Mariosa’s Suggestions:
•   Update Key List
•   Leave all emails marked unread
•   For Freshers take Name, Student Number, Phone Number, Emergency Contact as quicker than sisweb

Conor’s Suggestions:
•   Appease the pool, pool relations are super important. Treat the pool as you would like to be treated yourself. Keep equipment room clean. Don’t go to the jacuzzi at the start of the year. Be safety conscious for freshers, expect other older club members to step up.

Ailbhe’s Suggestions:
•   Get Calendar nailed down ASAP
•   Keep everyone in the loop all the time
