IoD Ireland marks 30 years since its incorporation on Wednesday, 11th January 2023. In this time, membership and the team has grown, but the focus and aim of IoD remains constant.

Marking our 30th Anniversary is just the beginning for the IoD, as we will also be implementing a new strategy that will lead us into the future with the vision to make Ireland an exemplar of corporate governance. Our purpose will be to instill stakeholder trust and confidence in organisations by educating, informing, and supporting directors and business leaders to lead successfully. 

We would like to acknowledge and thank all our current and past Presidents (please see a list of our past Presidents below), Council members, and staff for their dedication and commitment to getting us to this important milestone. We would also like to acknowledge all our members for their support. 

Throughout 2023 we will mark our 30th birthday in a number of different ways, from highlighting our members, key moments from the past and more. We would love to hear from our members and stakeholders as well of their experiences over the last 30 years. Please share any past stories you may have with the IoD Ireland Communications Team. Watch some memories below.
