Ireland committee

Welcome to the Ireland committee

The Ireland committee is the eyes and ears of the institute in Ireland, providing a local point of contact for members.

In addition to the main committee and its activities, there are two sub-committees: the financial services sub-committee and student sub-committee.

Along with a programme of CPE events, networking sessions and an annual conference, the committee also organises financial services round tables and private sector round tables.
