President Robert Murray confirmed at his 128th Annual General Meeting on Thursday that he will step down as President of Drogheda and the District Chamber Council in October 2022.
The meeting took place at The Mill Enterprise Hub and was the first in-person AGM since 2019.
Robert opened the AGM and presented a summary of the initiatives and programs implemented by the Chamber over the past year, including the launch of the website www.indrogheda.com; the response to the Irish Business Against Litter (IBAL) report and the long-term industry strategy designed within the Chamber Council team.
Also present, Mayor of Drogheda, Michelle Hall, highlighted the close collaboration that now exists between the Chamber and the various government and business groups working together to bring greater recognition, opportunity and prosperity to Drogheda and the surrounding region.
President Robert Murray also noted the improved working synergies between the broader business and government groups, noting in particular how the progressively deepened relationships between the Chamber and the Mayor’s Office, Louth County Council and IDA have each brought tangible benefits to the community.
Robert commented: “Our first in-person AGM in three years is not only a representation of the difficulties caused by the Covid pandemic, which are moving into a new and more positive phase, but also an opportunity to recognize the tremendous progress our company and community has made – against a backdrop of challenging circumstances – determined to work together more effectively and form team-based initiatives that serve a single, unified goal, which is to make Drogheda and our surrounding area a world-class place to live, work and invest in for all.”
