As a “Business Representative Organisation”, a vital area of strategic importance to meet our objectives is achieved through careful planning and discussion. We have a number of standing committees which are the backbone of the Chamber along with the board of directors who meet regularly.
We also meet with the New Ross Municipal District Authority on a quarterly basis.
