Passage of Bill to resolve ‘Catch-22’ situation on AGMs welcomed by Institute of Directors in Ireland
The Institute of Directors (IoD) in Ireland has today welcomed the passage of the Companies (Miscellaneous Provisions) (Covid-19) Bill 2020 addressing the many issues facing companies trying to comply with, in particular, the Company Law requirement to hold AGMs during the current crisis, as detailed in Section 6 of the Bill. IoD Ireland had called on the previous Government to take action on the AGM issue due to the impact of COVID-19 health and safety restrictions.
The CEO of the Institute of Directors (IoD) in Ireland, which represents over 3,000 business leaders in Ireland, has welcomed the new economic stimulus package announced by the Government this afternoon.
Cash flow issues, incurring debt, and the impact of COVID-19 on their organisations’ ‘bottom line’ for 2020 are among the chief concerns of business leaders in advance findings of the latest Director Sentiment Monitor for Q2 2020 to be published next week by the Institute of Directors (IoD) in Ireland.
In a new survey by the Institute of Directors (IoD) in Ireland, over one-third (34%) of business leaders believe ‘a Second Wave’ of COVID-19 is the biggest risk facing their organisation, while nearly a quarter (24%) see the reluctance of some staff to return to the office/workplace due to COVID-19 as the ‘biggest barrier’.
The Institute of Directors (IoD) in Ireland is delighted to publish its list of recently qualified Chartered Directors. As part of this qualification, newly qualified Directors may also use the designation CDir after their name.
