Award. Macra President, Kieran O’Dowd, said, “Macra’s Leadership Training programme aims toprovide opportunities for members to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes necessary for a leadership position in Macra and in other organisations. The awards scheme recognises the hard work and achievements of county officers working on a voluntary basis within Macra.” A Gold Award is the highest level that can be secured by a Macra na Feirme county officer, and makes that person eligible to be considered for a Macra National Leadership Award or to participate as a Macra representative on a number of overseas seminars including the European Rally for rural young people.
