We are delighted to continue our longstanding relationships with both Macra and the ASA by supporting this event. Our hope is that this will provide attendees with a valuable forum to meet, exchange insights, and address the evolving landscape of our industry.”
The event will take place on 7th March in the Heritage Hotel, Laois, kicking off with an arrival and registration period from 11.00 to 12.00, allowing attendees to settle in and connect with fellow professionals. At 12 noon, guests will be welcomed by Macra president, Elaine Houlihan, and ASA president, Niamh Bambrick, who will deliver an opening address that sets the tone for the event’s theme of empowerment and progress.
Niamh Bambrick, ASA president, commented: “ASA is delighted to join up with Macra to host this event ‘Resilient Industry: Adapting to Change’. Given I as the ASA president and Elaine as the Macra president are both the youngest Presidents of the organisation who also happen to be women, we feel this event was timely for our two organisations to join up, to reflect on how our industry is resilient and also very adaptable to change. We have chosen the proceeds of this event to go to a fantastic charity, Breast Cancer Ireland, which is a charity that is close to all of our hearts. This is in recognition also of International Women’s Day which occurs on Friday 8th March.”
Elaine Houlihan, Macra president, commented: “Macra are delighted to be teaming up with the ASA for this upcoming event which gives an opportunity for us all to celebrate just how resilient our industry has been over the years, this event will also allow us to network between both organisations, while raising money for a very important charity. This event wouldn’t be possible without the support of FBD. We are looking forward to welcoming you to the Heritage Hotel on March 7th.”
