Wanted: Two Great Environmental Secretariat Members…

Nominations are open for two voluntary positions on the Secretariat of Clare PPN until Wednesday, October 28th at 5PM.  The secretariat is a group of people elected from PPN member groups who manage the Public Participation Network in Clare on behalf of all its members.

The two vacancies are for Environmental College Representatives. We are looking for nominees to carry on their work of building Clare PPN into a thriving network which is inclusive and has the capacity to engage with all local government and national decision making bodies that affect the wellbeing of people’s lives in County Clare.
