What are the different types of memberships with Conradh na Gaeilge?

Craobhacha Eagraíochta

 Organisational Branch
 
  • This is the traditional, voluntary branch that is and has always been at the very core of Conradh na Gaeilge.
  • The practical goal of each branch is to promote the Irish language in their local area.
  • It is easy to set up a branch. All you need is a small group of people to come together, with the shared desire to promote Irish, then set up a committee and register with Conradh na Gaeilge's Ard-Oifig.
  • Newsletters and information will be sent to members of the branch, and they will also be given a platform to share information about their events too.
  • The Organisational Branch will operate in accordance with the organisation's constitution in terms of governance

 Craobhacha Comhpháirteacha

 Partnership Branch
 
  • A Partnership branch is an Irish language group with their own legal status that still wishes to be a part of Conradh na Gaeilge (for example a Gaeltacht cooperative, Irish language groups with their own company status, etc.)
  • These types of group will now be able to register as a Partnership branch and take part in the organisation, such as for example by submitting a motion to the Ard-Fheis (except Constitutional motions), electing people on to the business committee, attending organisational events, and adding the wishes of their community to Conradh na Gaeilge’s agenda, etc.
  • The Partnership branch will still follow their own governance responsibilities as a company or otherwise, not under Conradh na Gaeilge’s governance status of a trust.
  • Each member of a Partnership branch will have a vote at Conradh na Gaeilge’s Ard-Fheis every year.
  • Newsletters and information will be sent to named contacts of the branch, and they will also be given a platform to share information about their events too.
