The Chamber is grateful towards the Directors who are stepping down, including Niamh Byrne, Alan Stone, Killian Smith and Maybelle Tan, and thank them for all their time and energy over the last few years in guiding the Chamber advance to its growth.
Members were also given insight of the Chamber’s performance for the year 2016, where the total number of events organised by the chamber grew approximately 20% in the year 2016, uptrending the Chamber’s direct reach of 500 in 2015 to 600 in 2016.
