Message from the President

Welcome to the latest edition of Agenda.

This is my first Agenda since taking on the role of President and I am looking forward to both meeting with members and promoting the ICSA: The Governance Institute in Ireland over the next two years.

Our vision is to be become the premier Governance Institute in Ireland and to do that we require continued support from our members. If you or any member you know would like to get involved and help us achieve our vision, please contact me at president@icsacharteredsecretaries.ie.

I would also like to thank Ruairi Cosgrove, the immediate past President, for his leadership and dedication to the Institute over the past two years and express our gratitude to his employers, PWC, for their support during his tenure.


Over the last six weeks we have held a number of very well attended events, which are listed below:
• Annual Lunch in Fire Restaurant
• CPD Event on Emerging Technologies in PwC

Our next CPD event will cover the Senior Executive Regime and will be held on Tuesday 22nd January 2019 in Deloitte. Please check the website which has all the details of upcoming events.
