Organigram of the Irish Cycling Campaign
  • Board – The Board of Directors/Trustees (hereafter simply referred to as the Board) is the grouping of people who are responsible for governing the Irish Cycling Campaign.  The Board as a body does not play an active role in campaigning and other day-to-day matters, but retains oversight as necessary. Legally, ‘the buck stops’ with the Board. Read more
  • Executive Committee – The Executive Committee is the group of people responsible for overseeing the Irish Cycling Campaign’s national advocacy function, management of finances, and internal workings that are not governance-specific, in order to ensure that the greatest possible impact can be made.

  • Action Groups – subcommittees of the Executive Committee that support the executive function of the organisation. Read More
  • Members – individuals who ‘own’ the organisation, have voting rights and benefit from a number of other membership services. Read More
  • Local Groups – groups within a local authority area whose primary function is the promotion of cycling. Read More.
  • Thematic Groups – groups who are defined by the topic or area of interest, such as road safety, speed limits or diversity, rather than a geographic area
  • Partners – organisations (incorporated or otherwise) who support us in some shape or form. They don’t have voting rights and their activities are not covered by our public liability insurance. Read More.
  • Patrons – Patrons hold honorary roles and have no legal responsibilities.  Patrons are usually well-known and generally respected individuals who can raise the profile and credibility of the organisation by lending their name to it.  They may also offer additional supports, such as providing quotations for press releases, speaking at events, or making introductions to their network
