AIPCO appoints new Chairperson

The Association of Irish Professional Conference Organisers (AIPCO) has announced its new Chairperson.
Jean Evans, Regional Director of Association Relations at MCI Group, will hold the position throughout 2012 and 2013.
“I’m honoured to be appointed Chairperson by my colleagues. Nicola McGrane, (who Evans replaces) is one of the leading lights in our industry and I’ve very big shoes to fill following the tremendous progress she helped manage against the background of one of the toughest economic periods in this country’s history,” said Evans.
“In this country we sometimes underestimate our ability to deliver world-class meetings and events, despite all the evidence to the contrary,” she added.
AIPCO is a non-profit organisation committed to raising standards of service among its members and other sectors of the meeting of the industry and works closely with the Irish Tourism Board, Fáilte Ireland, to promote Ireland as a conference hub.
With nine full-time members, AIPCO is the largest association of its kind in Ireland.
The other appointees to the AIPCO board were Marina Finn, Joint Managing Director of Abbey Tours, as Secretary; Ronan Flood, Managing Director of Advantage ICO, as Treasurer; and Brian McColgan, Chairman of Abbey Tours, as a Board Member.
