Data Protection Seminar for GAA Clubs
You may be aware of new Data Protection legislation, called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which is coming into effect in May 2018.  This legislation will have significant implications for GAA Clubs and it important that all of us are aware of our responsibilities regarding data protection.

In order to assist GAA Clubs to understand specifically what they must do to comply with the legislation, a number of Data Protection seminars are scheduled during March, one in each Province.  The seminars will start at 7:00 PM and will last approximately 2.5 hours.  Attendees can choose to attend the session that is closest to them.  

Please note that the Seminars are a repeat of the one held in Croke Park at the end of last year - if you attended that session, you do not need to re-attend, but you are welcome to do so if you so wish.

This Seminar is intended for Club Officials who are actively involved in the process of collecting, processing and storing information relating to members on an on-going basis. This may be the club Registrar or the Secretary or another volunteer and it will vary from club to club.  Please bring this event to the attention of the relevant person in your club.
It is hoped to have as many GAA Clubs as possible in attendance and delegates interested in attending should reserve their place using the links below.  The events are free but places are limited and you must reserve a place if you plan to attend.
