Issue 24 of the Development Programme Newsletter is now available. Find out about what has been happening in the regions with news and updates from our National President Kevin Monaghan and Regional Development Officers. CEO Maureen Kavanagh reflects on Budget 2024 and we introduce ARI’s new operations manager in the central support office, Sharon Casey. There are lots of members’ photos this month as ARAs made the most of the weather before winter sets in and many regions held their autumn council meetings. Finally, get up to date with the recently announced details of National AGM 2024, also included in this issue. We hope you enjoy.
