Governance

The Ireland Lacrosse Governance Manual contains detailed information about the governance and management of the organisation, its Constitution and Memorandum and Articles of Association, Executive Board Terms of Reference and Director Role Descriptions, and Strategic Plan information.  The Ireland Lacrosse Book of Rules contains detailed information about the rules, regulations, policies, codes of conduct and guidelines regarding all activities of Ireland Lacrosse.

In 2019, Sport Ireland took over the Governance Code for Community, Voluntary and Charitable Organisations as a Governance Code for Sport. The Government’s National Sports Policy, published in July 2018, tasks Sport Ireland with overseeing a process whereby all National Governing Bodies (NGBs) and Local Sports Partnerships (LSPs) adopt the Code by the end of 2021.  Ireland Lacrosse is actively working on ensuring compliance with the Governance Code by the end of 2021.

Amendments to the Ireland Lacrosse Governance Manual or Ireland Lacrosse Book of Rules may be proposed via email to info@irelandlacrosse.ie, and should include the relevant section number and header.  Proposals for amendments will be considered by the Ireland Lacrosse Executive Board and, where necessary or appropriate, by the Ireland Lacrosse general membership (normally via its Annual General Meeting (AGM)).

Each year, Ireland Lacrosse holds its Annual General Meeting (AGM) which is open to all members of Ireland Lacrosse (voting is limited to individuals with active memberships).  Included below are the minutes from each AGM, including also the minutes from an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) held in January 2017:
