EGM – North Kildare Chamber (EGM-Notice 8 February 2017)
Dear North Kildare Chamber Member,
The staff and Executive Committee are genuinely grateful for your continued support of the North Kildare Chamber of Commerce.
To provide the support your company deserves in the future, the two affiliated Chambers of Commerce in Co. Kildare, North Kildare Chamber and Newbridge Chamber (t/a Kildare South Chamber) have been engaged in a facilitated process since early 2016 to examine the merits and optimum method of creating a single Whole County Chamber to represent and promote the interests of the business community throughout the County of Kildare. This endeavour has enjoyed the support of multiple stakeholders within the public, private and educational sectors.
The Executive Committees of the two respective Chambers are pleased to advise that the attached Memorandum (North Kildare – Newbridge Chamber Agreement 16-12-22) of an Agreement was signed on 22nd December 2016 by the two mediation teams. This outlines the key recommendations to bring about a whole County Chamber to be voted on by the members of the two Chambers at EGMs to be held in February 2017. The EGM Notice and Instrument of Proxy are also attached (EGM – Instrument of Proxy – NKCC )
We believe this agreement has the best potential to deliver greater benefits to our members through sustainable growth and to ensure the Chamber’s resources are utilised to provide maximum delivery of services to member organisations on a local, regional and national level.
We will be holding a members’ Q+A evening to discuss this new exciting proposal in our offices on Tuesday 24th January 2017 at 6.30 pm.
We would also like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very prosperous 2017 for what we hope will be a great year for business in the county.
