​Working Group Nomination Submissions 2021

Working Group Nomination Submissions

Yesterday, we sent out a call for nominations across our industry Working Groups to enable them to be reconstituted at the beginning of Q2 2021. This was sent to the designated Primary Contact at your firm and outlined the process to be followed in order to submit nominations.

The deadline for the receipt of nominations is 5:30pm (GMT) Monday, 15 February 2021. Nominations received after this deadline cannot be accepted.

Overview of the updated Structure and Groups

In 2020 we carried out a significant member study examining in detail what our members want and expect to make our Association successful. We also took feedback from members, a number of Chairs, Council and members of my team. As a result, we have refreshed the structure and organisation of the WGs and SGs in order to improve the effectiveness of the Association and ensure a focus on strategic priorities. There will be an increased focus from the Irish Funds Team and the Programme Office on the most strategically important areas and WGs.

Participants will be selected primarily according to their ability and willingness to effectively deliver on the WG’s objectives. Therefore, ensuring the broadest representation by member firms on each group across the structure will be a less significant factor in selecting participants than in previous years. You will know that, as a Member of a Working Group, you are taking on a prominent and visible position of responsibility within your peer group to represent the industry and progress its objectives. You and your firm benefit from not only improving our industry’s ecosystem but also increasing your industry knowledge, profile and network.

Diversity will continue to be a factor we consider based on the information available to us when determining the final membership of working groups.
