As a member of Macra you are firstly a member of your local club. You will make new friends and will do new things. The club has a chairperson, secretary, treasurer and PRO, all of whom are elected by the club members each year.
The members decide on the programme of activities for the club. All members are encouraged to take part in some activities. This will include social activities and personal development through participation in competitions, travel, sport and agriculture, depending upon your preferences. Through your club you will come in contact with members from other clubs in your county and throughout Ireland.
Club of the Year is the competition that rewards outstanding clubs for their participation and enthusiasm. The Club of the Year competition recognises excellence in Macra clubs throughout the country. Donoughmore Macra, Muskerry, Co. Cork won the overall competition for 2015. The All-Ireland final takes place each year at the Macra rally (annual conference). There are also categories in the competition that recognise the Best Emerging Club and the Best New Macra Member.
