Regional Meetings & Officeholders

NAGS has 14 regions all of which hold their own meetings usually just before or just after National Council.  These meetings are a vital part of the association, allowing members to voice their views and where necessary send resolutions up to Council for debate and subsequent action if passed.

Regional chairmen have a vital role to play as the ‘eyes and ears’ of the association for their region and the following is a summary of their role:

  • Coordinate & Chair regional NAGS meetings (with support of Secretary)  Follow up any matters of concern as appropriate – perhaps contacting officeholders or liaising with regional management at the NFU M or the relevant farming union.
  • Be a contact for NFU/ NFUM for regional matters
  • Encourage/ chase membership and contact new agents as potential members of NAGS.
  • Direct members to appropriate officeholders and welfare officers
  • Be a contact for officeholders wishing to obtain regional responses/feedback.
