What Does Council Do?

Dublin Chamber relies on the active support of Council members and their businesses. Members act as a sounding board for their business and sector. They bring their expertise and that of their company in promoting the Chamber vision for Dublin in 2050, contributing to research, influencing Government, supporting membership development and promoting the services of the Chamber.

Being a member of Council also provides a great opportunity to network with your peers in business covering the full spectrum of business in Dublin and across all sectors of the economy. A list of our 2021 Council members can be found here.

Council members are asked to sign up to a Code of Governance, which details their roles and key responsibilities, such as working on taskforces and attending events. At its heart, Council represents the collective interests of the Membership and acts in the best interests of the Chamber and its Membership. Council also elects the President of Dublin Chamber, who must be a serving Council member, and the President is formally ratified at the AGM. The President and Nominations Committee then appoint a Board, which is responsible for the governance and management of Chamber business.

What’s the time commitment?

At a minimum, the Council meets 7 times a year and each member contributes to at least one taskforce, which will meet 4-6 times per year. Council members are generally much more engaged in supporting Chamber events, promoting the Chamber, its mission and vision, as well as the Chamber’s influencing agenda.

What do I need to do to run for election?
