Motions: 1. Proposed by the Board of Canoeing Ireland.
This motion proposes to insert the following into paragraph 8 of the Memo & Articles
as a sub paragraph.

“Canoeing Ireland adopts the Irish Sports Council Anti-Doping Rules which are
compliant with the World Amti-Doping Code. Canoeing Ireland strongly reccommends
that all paddlers become fimiliar with their rights and responsabilities in relation to
anti-doping programmes and act accordingly. Canoeing Ireland condems the use of
banned substances and unethical methods to improve the performance of athletes in
sport. We support a fair and equitable competition environment and doping does not
promote the good health and safe welfare of athletes. We believe that any illegal
substances and methods are against the spirit of sport and will bring the sport of
Canoeing into disrepute and accordingly have zero tolerance for such practices.”


2. . Proposed by the Board of Canoeing Ireland.

This meeting resolves that under the new board structure that individual board
members be allocated the following responsabilities.

A board member shall be allocated the role as representative for Women in Sport.
A board member shall be allocated the role as representative for Youth in Sport and
Inclusion.
A board member shall be allocated the role as representative for Access &
Environment.
A board member shall be allocated the role as representative for Water Tourism.

It is invisaged that the above roles will ensure that Canoeing Ireland is actively
promoting and developing these areas through the mechanisms of the board, its
professional staff in co-operation with its technical disciplines and clubs, accessing all
available resources through grant aid and development programmes. .
3. . Proposed by the Board of Canoeing Ireland.

This meeting resolves that Canoeing Irelands representative on the board of
Paralympics Ireland be nominated annually by the board in conjunction with Canoe
Sprint Ireland. The representative should report back regularly to the board and
Canoe Sprint Ireland. It should also be the role of this representative to ensure
Canoeing Ireland is actively promoting and developing para-canoe/ kayak through the
mechanisms of the board, its professional staff, clubs and technical disciplines by
accessing available grants and developing various para canoe / kayak programmes.

4. . Proposed by the Board of Canoeing Ireland.

This meeting resolves to set up a working group to review the direct provision of
courses by Canoeing Ireland with a view to phasing out this type of activity by
January 2015

I went, I was nominated for position of Leinster Rep which is the role I now hold.

I wrote a bit about it earlier today here if you want to look

Attendance was poor apart from the regular ADM attenders.

'It would be difficult to summarise the ADM in a positive light but I think that it’s fair to say that the current situation is tempestuous at best. Some of the goings on today do not reflect well on Canoeing Ireland and are not representative of a lot of the amazing work that is being done by individuals and clubs at grass roots level.'

That more or less sums it up for me at the moment.
