I am delighted to address you as your new President. I am humbled by the tremendous support and well wishes I have received from members, thank you. The Limerick Conference was a real high note for ENAS and the feedback we have received has been excellent. I hope the Conference made a difference to you, and you have learned something new or been inspired to do something different or new. A new initiative we can be proud of was leaving a legacy by raising over €1,200 for the Locals Sports Partnerships for children’s sport. Happy Days! Well done and thank you for your generosity and a special thanks to our local host and organiser Neasa Fahy O’Donnell.
The first few weeks of the Presidency have been very busy. On 20th November I was accompanied by Stephane (Vice President), Bertrand (General Secretary) and Annelien (ENAS Officer) to visit our friends in Lille to discuss aspects of the next conference. I am happy to report that the venue is very nice and the Lille organisers, Fabrice and Jean Marie are keen to impress and plans are already underway for another excellent Conference.
We also plan to support numerous events throughout the year promoting communications and exchanges, and develop key partnerships to provide opportunities for you to share experiences and good practices.
I am very excited about our fantastic ENAS Officer, she is already driving an ambitious work programme and is keeping me on my toes! I look forward to leading the brilliant EC team, some in new roles and a special welcome to Bruno Almeida (Porto University), who was co-opted.
I am here to serve you and will take your guidance at every opportunity, so please do get in touch if you have any ideas, suggestions or comments. This is your network! There is always room for improvement and new developments.
