The commission will, among other tasks, set the standards for volunteer training and development, and actively seek feedback from our volunteers and officials and provide them with a voice at the top table in Motorsport Ireland.

Proposals for membership are invited from members of Motorsport Ireland affiliated clubs.
 
These should be sent from the club secretary to VolunteersandOfficials@motorsportireland.com, for the attention of the Chairperson of the Volunteers and Officials Commission. 

The ideal candidates should:

Be experienced in/have a history of volunteering/acting as an official.
Have a knowledge of the structure of Motorsport and how it works in Ireland

Proposals should include full contact details along with details of the candidate’s experience and a brief piece on what the candidate believes they can contribute to the commission.
