National Conference 2018

NRC National Conference 2018

Accommodation in Portlaoise will be limited as the Electric Picnic Music Festival is taking place the same weekend!

The NRC National Conference has been changed from Saturday 8th September to Saturday 1st & Sunday 2nd September 2018 – location is still Portlaoise.

This change is as a result of the National Competitions starting a week earlier than the original notification received from Basketball Ireland. The National Leagues are now starting on Saturday 8th September.

As a result of this change, the NRC will endeavour to keep the additional costs to a minimum, with full details (agenda & costs) being released shortly.

All members of the NRC are encouraged to attend the National Conference. In particular at this time, we require any Officials who wish to become a member of the NLOP (National League Officials Panel) to advise by return email to as soon as possible if they are not available for the Conference on 1st & 2nd September, but wish to become a member of the NLOP.

Subsequently as the National Leagues games will take place from 8th September, the NLOP are required to advise Joe of their availability/non-availability for September 2018 as soon as possible to Joe’s email address:

We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the date change, which is outside of the NRC’s control.
