Message from the President - April 2019

ICSA guidance on minute taking

Following a series of discussions with experienced minute takers from both corporate and not-for-profit sectors, ICSA has published its new minute taking guidance. The guidance provides up to date expert advice about all aspects of the process, from preparing the agenda to the storage of the finished documents, and has a wealth of handy tips about how to avoid some of the pitfalls that can face those taking minutes of meetings. I would encourage you to read the guidance note, which can be accessed here.

New members for the Irish Region Council and subcommittees.

I am looking for volunteers who may be interested in participating on our Irish Region Committees. If you are interested in getting involved, please email president@icsacharteredsecretaries.ie.

CPD Events

Our recent event on Directors and Officers Liability Insurance was very well attended and we were treated to some excellent insights on this subject. Many thanks to Arthur Cox who provided the venue and two of the speakers.

We continue to hold CPD events on all aspects of corporate governance and company law. Please check out our website for details of upcoming events.

ICSA annual lunch
Our annual lunch will take place on Friday 18 November 2016 at Fire Restaurant. I hope you will be able to attend.


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

Connect with us

I would urge you visit the webpage and to connect with us through our LinkedIn Page.

Calendar of events

A calendar of events is available through the Networking and 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.


I would like to take this opportunity to thank William Fry Solicitors for contributing to this edition of Agenda. Should you have any queries in relation to any of the above articles please do not hesitate to contact me at president@icsacharteredsecretaries.ie

As I will be finishing my term as President on the 18 November, I would like to thank all of you for your support over the last two years.

Conor Ryan
