Ladies Gaelic Football Association PRO Workshop

The Leinster PRO Donal Fitzpatrick has arranged for a wonderful opportunity for all county and club PRO’s within Leinster. Derek Kinnevey, PR and Media Manager for the LGFA will be holding a PRO Workshop on Monday 29th August in Aras Laighean, Portlaoise beginning at 7.00pm.

As we all know every club needs publicity – it helps development and attracts new members as well as encouraging and motivating present members. The PRO is a responsible position as a good PRO can be very beneficial to the club. The media are not obliged to cover Ladies Gaelic Football therefore in order to ensure increased publicity the PRO’s must be self-promoting. The main function of the PRO is to communicate with the general public on behalf of the club presenting a positive image to the club and Ladies Gaelic Football in the local community and beyond.

Derek will be looking at a number of topics including the use of Social Media, fundraising and sponsorship, building connections with local newspapers and radio stations and other aspects of the PRO Position. This is also a great opportunity to come meet and network with other PRO’s both on a club and county level. Exchanging ideas and building contacts are vital to running a successful publicity campaign for the club and also makes the workload more manageable. Gaining hints and ideas from other PRO’s will help to develop your club and your own ideas.

The details for the PRO workshop are as follows:

Date:                     Monday 29th August 2016
