Workshop during ISACS AGM 2019
Many thanks to those who attended ISACS AGM on Tuesday 30th April at Dance Ireland, Dublin, and contributed to the organisation's future by voting at our Board elections. We especially want to thank our outgoing directors Noeline Kavanagh and Aidan Phelan for all their time and contributions to the board of ISACS. 
We are delighted to introduce our three new members to the Irish Street Arts, Circus and Spectacle Network board!

Please welcome the three newly elected board directors:

She also regularly partakes in upskill training with the Arts Council and Waterford Chamber of Commerce covering areas such as governance, data protection, financial reporting, employment legislation and child protection.
