ISAF Annual Conference
Ciara assisted me in the organisation and the hosting of the 2012 ISAF Annual Conference & General Assembly in Dún Laoghaire. This was a major event for Irish Sailing attracting over 650 of the world's top sailing administrators and their partners for a ten day conference. Due to the size of the event, the meetings and social functions were spread over a number of different venues in both Dun Laoghaire and Dublin City Centre - the Royal Marine Hotel, Dún Laoghaire Town Hall, Waterfront Yacht Clubs, Pavilion Theatre, the Mansion House and others.

Ciara was originally engaged as the Conference Liaison to help with the promotion and planning of the event, and very quickly made herself invaluable to the organisation and operations side also. Among other things, she organised planning meetings, liaised with sponsors, hotel representatives, meeting venues and suppliers and designed & created brochures and display material. She co-ordinated the Conference Social Programme even acted as chauffer to King Constantine of Greece!
