Message from our Chairman…….

Guest post by Frank O’Conor, March 2015

Dear fellow Alumni,

Welcome to your Alumni website and to another year of intellectual and not so intellectual happenings being organized by your diligent, hardworking Committee. These events are currently being finalized and you should shortly be receiving details from our communications guru, Marjorie McHenry, either by email ( if we have your address ) or by post.

As you are aware, the Alumni was established following the merger of CTT and Forbairt in 1989 when a group of like minded CTT’ers decided to retain the wonderful hardworking, friendly and committed ethos which had existed in both CTT and The Irish Trade Board over many years.. To this end our Alumni was formed and has flourished since through interesting and fun filled events such as we are organizing for members this year. The wonderful turnout at out our 25th. Anniversary Dinner last year clearly indicates that we ( both Irish and our overseas colleagues ) do want to stay in touch. Your Committee therefore hopes that as many of you as possible will participate in some ( or all ) of these gatherings in 2015.

We are not an autocratic committee and would love to hear from members about what events they prefer and which new events should be considered. Your ideas – no matter how way out – would be very welcome.

Your Committee looks forward to meeting old friends and colleagues during this year.

May you have a peaceful and happy year, wherever you may reside.

Kindest personal regards,
