IMCA's Annual General Meeting was held at a Dublin venue on Wednesday, 27th July 2011 and had a good attendance with all motions passed successfully. The President’s review of the year indicated that membership numbers had held up in spite of a difficult business environment.
As has worked successfully over the past few years, the AGM was followed by a wine reception and members’ discussion forum over dinner which provided a useful social adjunct to the formal business of the AGM.
This year we had an outside speaker speak about the scale of change faced in public sector reform. Stephen Donnelly, a recently elected Dáil Eireann representative with a background in management consultancy with McKinsey, had an interesting perspective on the role of elected representatives and the issues involved in implementing change. This made for an interesting discussion over a BBQ style dinner.
Pictured below are some attendees at the dinner.
