Message from the President - October 2019

Welcome to the latest edition of Agenda.

Register of Beneficial Ownership (RBO)

The deadline to file beneficial ownership information to the RBO for most Irish companies is 22 November 2019. More information on the filing process is included in our featured Agenda article.


We had great attendances at our two recent CPD events in September and October. We look forward to welcoming members to our last CPD event of the year on the morning of Tuesday 5 November on the topic of 'Share Capital Toolkit - Tax and Accounting Considerations', kindly hosted by PwC.

November is a busy month for the Institute. We have a lunchtime event with Carmichael on ‘Boardroom ethics and behaviour’ for the not-for-profit sector on 14 November, kindly hosted by Arthur Cox, and our AGM and annual lunch on the day after that in Fire restaurant, Dublin.

We are running a training course for mentors on 3 December, and new mentors are welcome. See the webpage for further details.

Calendar of events

A calendar of events is available through the Events tab of the website and I would encourage members and students to attend as many events as possible and to become an active member of the Chartered Governance Institute in Ireland.
