Event Management Training this Thursday in Clones- BOOK NOW


Two days left to sign up for our first training event: Event Management, which takes place in Clones on Thursday from 7 to 10pm.

Do you know what permits you need to run a fundraising event? How do you minimise the risk to your committee of being held liable if someone has an accident at the event? What are your legal responsibilities? How do you go about getting a road closed? What about stewarding? Do you inform the Gardai? Can you sell tickets or do you need to apply to the court for a licence for that?

Find out the answers to these and many other questions at our 3-hour All You Need to Know Masterclass, led by tutors from the Carmichael Centre.

Book your place with Leona by phoning 047 73750, emailing, or filling out our online booking form here
