New York Visit | Ireland Chamber of Commerce – USA
The North Kildare Chamber of Commerce (NKCC) is sending a delegation to attend a series of events in New York between the 7th and 10th of October 2015 being organised by the Ireland Chamber of Commerce-USA (ICCUSA). For over 25 years the ICCUSA has promoted Trans-Atlantic business development, trade missions, educational initiatives and philanthropy from the United States to Ireland while also improving relations and connecting companies around the world.
North Kildare Chamber has been establishing links over the past couple of years with ICCUSA CEO, Maurice A. Buckley, who regularly visits Co. Kildare. The Chamber will be represented in New York by its President, Vivian Cummins, and CEO, Allan Shine who will also hold a series of meetings with Irish representative organisations based in Manhattan and a group of business people who represent U.S. interests in Ireland.
The Chamber will also be guests of the ICCUSA at its 27th Annual American Celtic Ball, an awards banquet/dinner, attended by a hundred business and government leaders from Ireland, the US and around the world.
The recipients of the Sir Michael Smurfit Business Achievement Awards at the Celtic Ball this year include:
William McMorrow (Chairman and CEO – Kennedy Wilson)
Anthony J. Orlando (Director – Covanta Holding Corporation)
Kathleen A. Murphy (President Personal Investing – Fidelity Investments)
Joe Kennedy (Chairman – Knock Airport).
The Chamber committee is very pleased to support this initiative and believes that the visit represents a unique opportunity for further development of a strong alliance and strategic partnership with the ICCUSA and its networking opportunities for positioning Co. Kildare for continued success in business, trade and investment via the fertile macro and micro markets in the United States.
