ILDN Chairperson's Address
As Chairperson of the Irish Local Development Network, my focus is to further the concept of the community led local development approach across the county in both rural and urban contexts. As Chairperson, I work with my Board, Network members , Key Departments and stakeholders to ensure the effective development of our communities in combating social exclusion and promoting enterprise and employment initiatives. In the constantly changing environment, the Network plays in key role in representing and promoting our members across a range of policy and practice areas. It is also positioned as the main interface to progress matters of relevance to our members with the key funding Departments and relevant EU bodies.
I look forward to working for the continued development of our sector and, by extension the communities that we serve.
