SWAN Ireland in a new national SWAN venture established in 2012.
The people putting themselves forward for the next round of the CORU registration board have been put up on CORU's website. CHECK THIS OUT ASAP. Voting will be by post and will close on July 29th. Whether you love CORU (or hate it) it is vitally important that YOU, the people on the ground, have a voice in this process. See if you know any of the candidates. If so, contact them and ask them what their objectives are, if voted in. Critique them, tell others what they say and make sure to post it on the SWAN facebook page and/or Twitter account. We will send out as much info about the candidates as we can to make sure you are all as informed as possible. Don't let the next four years of CORU be as bad as the first few years. CORU should HELP us do our jobs, not HINDER us.
