Governance Structure

Hockey Ireland – Organisation Structure

The Management Board has eleven members as well as the President, Vice President, and CEO who sit ex-officio and the Company Secretary. 2 of the Committees listed below (Finance & Risk Management and Governance) are committees of the Board. The Board’s intention is to be more strategically focused, with the Committees and working groups along with staff having more responsibility for day to day activity.  The primary driver is to engage volunteers who have an expertise and passion for a given area within the sport.
