Clare Public Participation Network invites all member groups to its county level plenary meeting.
Clare Public Participation Network is holding its second Plenary Meeting of 2017 to which all member groups are invited to send one or more representatives. This will take place on November 30th at 7.30pm in the Civic Offices Waterpark House, Drumbiggle, Ennis. At this meeting member groups of Clare PPN will have the opportunity to plan the organisation’s activities for the year ahead as well as asking any questions they wish about the work to date.
This meeting is also open to the general public and will include an introduction to the purpose and work of the network by Sarah Clancy the PPN’s Coordinator. There will be an opportunity for those attending to get together and hear from some of the community activists who were elected to represent them on Clare County Council’s policy making committees.
Light refreshments will be served.
Marie Therese Carroll who is a member of the secretariat that organises the PPN’s activities in Clare called on community groups to join the PPN: ‘Every day our County Council makes decisions that will affect our lives in the county both immediately and in the future. It is vital that the people who live in Clare use every avenue available to them to make their views known. The PPN allows us to put community people at the tables where policies are formed’
Groups wishing to join the PPN can register online on Clare PPN’s website:www.clareppn.ie

Clare PPN is a network of community, voluntary, environmental and social inclusion groups from Clare. It exists to facilitate the formal participation by the community sector in Clare County Council’s decision making structures. It is funded jointly by the Department Rural and Community Development and Clare County Council but is autonomous and its activities are directed by its members through an elected secretariat.
