The current NCU structures have been in place since 2005 and have served the union well. With the union now drafting a new Development Plan the NCU's Chairman Brian Walsh felt that to assist in deciding on the future direction and structure of the union, a review was necessary.
The event was led by Robin Gregg, Sport NI, who took the Board through a series of group planning and evaluation sessions to help develop the requirements for the future.
With the upcoming Inter-Provincial cricket series adding an extra dimension to the NCU, the away day allowed the Board to re-prioritise its workload and look at how this can be incorporated within a new Board structure.
Brian said: ‘‘I feel that the union has served our clubs well in recent years and we have made a big effort to consult clubs before introducing change. We have a new challenge with the restarting of the Inter-Provincial series but we are determined not to lose sight of our domestic leagues and the needs of our clubs’’.
