IEA Regional Councils
The IEA established its regional growth and development strategy in 2016, a mandate of which was to establish a number of IEA Regional Boards to be made up of representatives from exporting businesses around the country. In June last year the West Regional Council was established which is Chaired by John Carr, VP Supply Chain Solutions of Flextronics and the Cork Regional Council which is Chaired by Alan Fehily of DePuySynthes.
The purpose of these Regional Councils is: to increase IEA presence on the ground, enhance our ability to understand and develop solutions to the local issues that are affecting our members, and to ensure we strengthen the regional input into the main IEA National Council.
The remit of the IEA Regional Councils is to: provide a local point of contact to members; act as an advocate for the region, and the export requirements of members; and provide a succession platform to the IEA National Council. The IEA aim to be within arm’s reach and available to members around the country providing a platform for businesses to be heard on local issues. The model of the Regional Council is 8-10 companies meeting around 4 times per year.
