Chamber EGM date announced

An Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) to decide whether or not New Ross & District Chamber of Commerce amalgamates with their Gorey and Wexford counterparts into a county chamber has been set for Wednesday, May 29, at 7 p.m. at Creacon Wellness Retreat.

The meeting follows on from an EGM in early April at which chamber members were briefed about how Wexford County Council is willing to provide €750,000 in start-up funding for the fledgling proposal over three years.

Opposing views were voiced as to the merits and disadvantages of amalgamating into a county chamber.

A 75 per cent vote in favour of amalgamation is required for the plan to succeed.
