You see players.
We see people.

National Executive Commitee

The ultimate governing body of the Gaelic Players Association is the National Executive Committee (NEC). The affairs of the Association are under the direction of the NEC. The NEC is elected by the members of the Association.

The NEC is comprised of a President, Chairman and Secretary, alongside 20 other members of the association, with a 50/50 split between male and female members. The Executive Officers have the power from time to time to co-opt to the NEC persons whose specific expertise and/or advice are deemed necessary for the better management of the GPA.
