FAI President and Vice-President nominations open

The FAI has invited nominations for the new President and Vice-President of the Association.

As part of the new proposals from the Governance Review Group, the two positions will be elected at the Annual General Meeting, rather than at a special Council meeting.

The new President and Vice-President will serve on the Interim Board for 12 months.

Both roles will be elected at the AGM on July 27th, but only if the terms of the Governance Review Group report are passed at the EGM on July 20th.

In the letter sent to AGM members, General Manager Noel Mooney writes: "I am writing to you in advance of our AGM on the 27th July to invite nominations for the positions of President and Vice-President of the Football Association of Ireland.

"As you will be aware, following recommendations outlined in the Governance Review Group Report (the “Report”), there will be an EGM on the 20th July next to vote on proposed new rules which will include an amendment to the way in which members elect the President and Vice President of the Association.

"As per recommendation 59 of the Report it is proposed that such elections take place at the Association’s AGM.

"Given the commitment of the current President and Vice President to step down on 27th July, it will be necessary to hold elections for these positions on 27th July. You are therefore invited to submit nominations by close of business on 12th July next."

However, if the recommendations of the GRG Report are not passed at the EGM on July 20th, then elections for these positions will be held as was previously the case at a Council meeting.

If required, the election will take place at a special meeting of Council which will be held directly after the AGM on 27th July. In order to be eligible under the current rules, a nominee must have been a member of Council for at least three years, which service need not necessarily have been consecutive.
