About our Advocacy


Working on Behalf of Our Members 

We present clear and evidence-based representation to decision makers in Dublin, Brussels and Washington DC on behalf of our members. Our advocacy work clearly demonstrates the strength and depth of the two-way US-Ireland trade and economic relationship that has benefited the US, the EU and Ireland.

How we do this

Through our very extensive working groups, business programmes and networking events we support deep collaboration and peer- to- peer learning for our members companies in the areas ranging from research development and innovation to lifelong learning.  We work closely with the Government & other partners to make this happen. This includes:

  • Proposing policies to enhance Ireland's global reputation

  • Thought leadership on emerging opportunities

  • Ensuring Government is fully informed on our members' priorities

Our members play an active role in this work through our Membership Groups. The Board of Directors oversees the Chamber’s advocacy work.
