Speaking this morning, 5th May 2022, at the announcement of the Chambers Ireland “Chamber of the Year Award” shortlist, Chambers Ireland Chief Executive, Ian Talbot, said: “Each year, Chambers Ireland awards our member chambers who have delivered best-practice projects that have supported their members and their communities in a variety of ways.
“While the local chambers across the network span cities and towns of highly divergent scales, the challenges that exist on the ground often share the same causes even if they are expressed in different ways.
“Our annual awards are a way to help our members learn from each other’s successes and to draw inspiration from the activities of chambers from across the network.
“Over the Covid crisis, this sense of shared challenges was never greater than for those of us who represent businesses, large and small.
“This year, we are delighted that we will at last be able to return to an in-person event for these awards on the 2 June 2022. I want to thank all of our chambers for their efforts, and wish them every success in the year ahead”.
Announcing the shortlist for the awards, Joe Creegan, Director of Corporate Life and Pensions at Zurich Ireland commented: “Zurich is delighted to continue our support of the annual Chamber Awards.These awards acknowledge the excellence of the Chamber network in supporting local economic development.
