President Robert Murray confirmed that he will stand down as President of Drogheda and District Chamber Council in October 2022, at its 128th Annual General Meeting on Thursday.
The meeting took place at The Mill Enterprise Hub and was the first in-person AGM held since 2019.
Robert opened the AGM, presenting a summary of initiatives and programmes that the Chamber has led within the past year, including the launch of the www.indrogheda.com website; the response to Irish Business Against Litter(IBAL) Report, and the long-term, industry-pillar strategy that has been mapped out within the Chamber Council team.
Mayor of Drogheda Michelle Hall, also in attendance, highlighted the close cooperation that now exists between the Chamber and the various governmental and business groups who are working together to drive greater recognition, opportunity and prosperity to Drogheda and the surrounding region.
President Robert Murray also remarked on the improved working synergies across the wider business and governmental groups, particularly highlighted how the progressively deepening relationships between the Chamber and Mayoral Office, Louth County Council and The IDA respectively has produced tangible benefits for the community.
Robert commented, “Our first in-person AGM for three years is not only a representation of the difficulties created by the Covid pandemic which 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.”
