Mayo PPN Secretariat

























The Purpose of the Mayo PPN Secretariat

The purpose of Mayo PPN Secretariat is to administer the day to day running of the PPN, facilitate decisions and coordinate activities of the PPN.

The role of the Mayo PPN Secretariat

The role of the PPN Secretariat is to:

Facilitate the implementation of the decisions of the Plenary
Ensure the proper functioning of the PPN in between Plenaries
Coordinate activities of PPN

Communicate extensively and regularly with all PPN Members and in the process disseminate information concerning all PPN activities as widely as possible.

Manage the resource worker who will be provided to the PPN at a county level to enable them in delivering their objectives.

Once the PPN Secretariat and all other structures have been fully established, the Secretariat will oversee the registration of organisations with support from the Chief Officer (if needed)

The role of the Secretariat in relation to Linkage groups

When Mayo County Council has public participant seats to fill on any of its committees/ structures it will notify the PPN Secretariat and ask that the representatives to fill these seats be chosen by the PPN. The Secretariat will then notify all member organisations in the County of this situation and arrange a time and a place for all those organisations with an interest/involvement in the issue(s) being addressed by the particular body or, in the case of places representing particular interests of communities, those organisations which fit the relevant criteria.

This group will constitute a PPN “Linkage Group” for this particular body and the topic(s) being addressed. The Linkage Group will choose their representatives for the body. The person chosen to represent the PPN in such bodies will meet their Linkage Group regularly and report back to them after every meeting.

Membership of the Mayo Public Participation Network Secretariat

The Secretariat will be made up of two representative from each of the Municipal Districts and an equal number (minimum of 2) of representatives from each of the electoral colleges of the PPN.

Community & Voluntary Representatives,  Social Inclusion Representatives and  Environmental Representatives
