Information on the process for the development of this plan, including details about the associated consultation process, are available at Ireland Lacrosse Strategic Plan 2023-2026 – background summary.
The implementation of the new strategic plan will also be complemented by a restructuring of the Ireland Lacrosse governance and management arrangements – this is a ‘work in progress’ and will naturally over time, but the current formulation is as follows:
The Ireland Lacrosse Governance Manual also contains detailed information about the governance and management of the organisation. 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. These important documents were last developed in 2018 and will be reviewed in the near future in light of the new strategy and revised governance and management arrangements, and to ensure they are fit for purpose and reflect relevant developments at national, international and sectoral level. Proposals for amendments will be considered by the Ireland Lacrosse Board and, where necessary or appropriate, by the Ireland Lacrosse general membership (normally via its Annual General Meeting (AGM)).
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.
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 presentations/minutes from each AGM, including also the minutes from an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) held in January 2017:
