Why Be a Member of PDA?

In today’s ever-changing educational landscape membership of PDA is a constant that you can rely on for support and advice in relation to your role as a Principal or Deputy Principal. Some of the advantages of membership are:

The principal role of the PDA is to open up avenues of communication for members and to represent their views at national level to both the TUI and ETBI. The highlight of the year is the Annual Conference which is held each year in November. Motions passed at conference give the executive a mandate for the following year in relation to issues which are relevant to the working lives of Principals and Deputy Principals. The conference also offers opportunities for Continuous Professional Development as each year recognised experts from different sectors address conference on relevant topics. Also, conference allows members from throughout the country to come together in a relaxed atmosphere to renew acquaintances and to re-energise to meet the challenges of the important work that we undertake.
