On Sunday 5th December, the INTA hosted its Annual General Meeting in the Glenroyal Hotel, Maynooth, Co Kildare. Following the success of the previous day’s Black Belt Grading, INTA instructors from throughout the country met to discuss the past year and plans for 2022.
Over the course of the meeting, there were a number of presentations from Board members including Master Terry Donnelly, Mr Keith Matthews and Mr Liam Carberry. A diverse and exciting calendar of events was discussed with members with the potential for further disruption caused by Covid not being too far from anyone’s thoughts.
There was also a presentation on a future strategy for the association by the incoming President, Master Kevin Hannigan who was elected to serve a 3-year term by the members. Master Hannigan will join the existing team of Master Donnelly, Mr Matthews and Mr Carberry to promote and serve the interests of the INTA’s members at all levels. The first element of this strategy will be the creation of an Instructor’s Forum which will have its first meeting on 29th January
