Message from the President
Welcome to the latest edition of Agenda which is now being provided to you through our website which can be accessed here.

Raising the profile of the Chartered Secretary
Myself, our Business Development Manager, John Burns and Council colleagues will continue to raise the profile of the ICSA and the Chartered Secretary by presenting to Universities, Colleges and Institutes around Ireland in the months ahead on the role of the company secretary and the wealth of opportunities available in this area.

Annual Conference
Our annual conference will be held on Thursday 17th May at The Printworks, Dublin Castle.  Our Events Committee have been very busy working on a programme of speakers and technical workshops of interest to both our members and the wider governance community.  Our dedicated webpage has been launched and early bird booking rates are available up to 28 March. Visit the conference website.

CPD Events
We held a very interesting CPD event on Board Effectiveness and Culture in Deloitte on 20 February.  There was a fantastic turnout and both presenters provided practical tips and guidance for Company Secretaries.

We held our first CPD event in Cork in December on Effective Minute Taking which was well attended and featured excellent insights from our panel of Company Secretaries.

We will be holding a number of CPD over the course of 2018 in Dublin and Cork – please check the website for further details.

Training Courses
In addition to our CPD events, we will be holding two training courses over the next two months, one for Company Secretaries working in the State Sector / Public Bodies and one on Minute Taking. There will be a limited number of places on these courses so if you are interested, please register through the website.

There have been a number of blogs posted over the last few months on topics relevant to company secretaries.  These can be accessed here.

Calendar of Events
A calendar of events is available through the Events tab of the website and I would encourage members to attend as many events as possible and to become an active member of the ICSA in Ireland.  Please note that these events are also open to non-members so if you have any colleagues or friends who may be interested in attending, please urge them to come along.
