National Council
ABOUT

National Council

National Council is comprised of representatives from the Local Institute Councils of Cork, Dublin, Galway, Limerick and Sligo and its work is supported by the Local Institute Forum which convenes bi-monthly and is hosted on a rotational basis. 

The forum provides a vital mechanism through which the Board of Directors is kept fully briefed on the matters that are most important to members, which in turn informs policy development.
