National Executive

NAPD is governed by its Constitution, Articles of Management and by the decision of its members at the annual conference.

The President is elected at the AGM at the annual conference. The office of President rotates each year between the three post-primary sectors, Community and Comprehensive, ETB and Voluntary Secondary Sector.

The National Executive meets on a monthly basis. It consists of the Presidents, nine regional representatives, a principal and deputy principal from each of the three-second level sectors and co-options to ensure gender and sectoral balance and an equal balance between representations of principals and deputy principals.
