Next meeting , November 24th



Dear All


The next meeting of NAPD Region 4 will take place on Thursday, November 24th at 2.30pm in Keadeen Hotel, Newbridge, Co Kildare.

Many of us met together as a regional group at the NAPD conference in Galway a few weeks ago.  It was great to have such a large and diverse group chatting professionally and relatively informally about current issues.  The diversity and breadth of the group are its strengths.  It would be great to maintain those numbers at our next meet and continue to the support and exchange of views that help sustain use through the school year.

 We hope that you will be able to join us as we reflect back on the opening months of the school year and look forward to the term ahead.  We hope to be joined at the meeting by a representative from NAPD head office.  Details to be confirmed

We expect the meeting to finish shortly after 4pm.






Yours sincerely,
