President’s Welcome to PDA Conference 2022

Adrian Power- PDA President

As we emerge from COVID restrictions, we are delighted to inform you that our annual conference will return this November to the beautiful Mount Wolseley Hotel in Tullow, Co Carlow. It takes place from the evening of the 9th of November until Friday the 11th of November. Our conference promises to be an exciting and informative event with excellent speakers on topics relevant to you as a school leader. You cannot possibly go away without picking up many useful nuggets to help you in your work.
As a CPD event, our conference is open to all Principals and Deputy Principals, irrespective of membership, so we would love to see you there. As such, we also have a long-standing agreement that attendees are entitled to claim travel and subsistence from your ETB as well as payment of conference fees. You may need to seek prior approval from your ETB in respect of such expenses.
The conference also offers you the opportunity to network with other school leaders in a relaxed and comfortable environment where there is always a rich sharing of ideas and, most importantly, a chance to unwind and gather your thoughts for a couple of days. As school leaders, we spend most of our time taking care of others, often at our own expense, and this conference is an opportunity to give yourself a little space and practice some self-care.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you well in the very difficult job you have and urge you to register for the conference and book your room as soon as possible. We would love to meet you there and I promise that you will not go away disappointed.
Yours sincerely
Adrian Power
President PDA
