Associate Membership of the Irish Coastal Rowing Federation is now available to single clubs which are not already affiliated to the ICRF through membership of their Associations. Upto now, clubs could only become affiliated to the ICRF if they were members of an Association which itself then joined the Federation, thereby giving its Member Clubs affiliation.
In order to cater for those clubs which have upto now been unable to join due to a lack of other interested clubs in their area to form an Association, a motion was passed at the 2014 ICRF AGM to facilitate such clubs being able to join the Federation and compete in all races at the All-Ireland Coastal Rowing Championships.
Associate Membership for Clubs will give those clubs which are accepted for Associate Membership the following rights:
The Right to compete in the One-Design ‘Celtic Yawl’ class races at the All-Ireland Coastal Rowing Championships.
The right to attend Delegate & General Meetings but there will be no right to vote at such meetings.
The right to avail of any services which are available to all other clubs such as to be covered by the ICRF Code of Ethics for Young People in Sport services such as Garda Vetting etc.
An annual Associate Membership Fee of €100 shall be payable annually and failure to pay this fee by the due date will result in a Club’s Associate Membership lapsing. The fee does not need to be sent with the application form. If a club’s request is approved, advice will be given accordingly and the fee can then be paid.
Application Forms can be downloaded by clicking on the ‘Governance, Safety & Ethics’ button on the top menu bar above and selecting the Associate Membership option from the Drop Down Menu.
