Tip of the Month

Using this time to get your house in order

 

Now is a great time for groups who may not be operating at their normal level to do some behind the scenes work. Without the workload of normal operations time may be available to look at things like strategic planning, reviewing policies and procedures, Garda Vetting, Governance Code Compliance, things which at times can be put on the long finger.
