Policy Council elections
In the context of extraordinary, unprecedented and challenging conditions facing the country, Dublin city, businesses and Dublin Chamber itself, has made the decision to roll-over’ the year (2020) in order to allow the Honorary Officers and Council Members get the greatest benefit possible from an extended period in office which has been denied because of COVID19, and provide the stability and certainty needed to steer the Chamber through these challenging and uncertain times.
The Board of Directors, working in the best interest of Dublin Chamber, resolved that the roll-over of Honorary Officer positions and Council positions will be rolled over for one year only.
Those holding the positions of President, Vice President and Deputy Vice President along with Council members will remain insitue throughout 2021. View the listing here
