New members for the Irish Region Council and Subcommittees

I am also looking for volunteers who may be interested in participating on our Irish Region Committees. If you are interested in getting involved, please email Caroline at the aforementioned email address.

Companies Act 2014

I am delighted to see that our recommendations regarding the Officer Service address have been accepted and the exemption requirements have been extended to a company’s registers. Read our submissions.

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.

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 tell them to come along.
