Robert commented “Our first in-person AGM for three years is not only a representation of that difficulties created by the Covid pandemic are evolving to a new and more positive phase, it is also an opportunity to recognise the huge strides that our business community has taken – against a background of challenging circumstances – to work together more effectively and form team-based initiatives that serve a singular, unified purpose, which is to develop Drogheda and our local area for everyone as a world-class place to live in, work in, and invest in”.
The Drogheda and District Chamber Council Members were confirmed at the meeting, with three retiring members being replaced by three new members. The composition of the remainder of the council remains unchanged. President Robert Murray confirmed that he will stand down in October 2022 and that a new President will be in place by then.
