Incoming Chair, Diane Waldron comments: “ICCA UK & Ireland is one of the organisations strongest and most forward-thinking chapters.  Our annual debate this year in Belfast saw record attendees as we brought together members, potential members and association clients for two days of highly relevant and insightful education and networking.  As a chapter we continuously seek to improve, and I am delighted that will continue through both Aileen’s support and our hard-working committee.”

Diane Waldron was previously acting chair of the ICCA UK & Ireland Chapter.  She will hold the role of chair until May 2020.

ICCA UK & Ireland member and global vice president of ICCA, James Rees comments: ““ICCA’s importance on the global meetings stage is more important now than ever before.  It is therefore vital that we have individuals focused on the development of the association and its membership to spearhead our chapters.  The ICCA UK & Ireland Chapter will undoubtedly benefit from the leadership of two proven individuals with track records of success and the right skills to truly deliver for the UK and Irish markets.”
