The North Dublin Chamber was established by a group of local business people in 1986 and was originally known as the Finglas and District Chamber of Commerce. The purpose of the Chamber was to provide support to members and foster an entrepreneurial environment where businesses would grow and be profitable. Despite the economic climate at the time, the chamber grew and prospered and soon expanded to include businesses from across North Dublin.
In 1997, the Chamber changed its name to reflect its wider membership base and became known as the North Dublin Chamber. The chamber has continued to expand and works closely with key stakeholders in the region including DCU Business School & Invent.
The issues facing business today are very different from the boom times and now more than ever, there is a need to support local businesses. The recent contraction in the economy, increased competition, the impact of the EU on commercial life and the opening of global markets continue to be important issues for any company operating in today’s environment. Our membership base remains concentrated in North Dublin and we welcome all members from within our region.
The Chamber Council and Executive consist of business people who are all based in the area. They come from various backgrounds, which include SMEs and large private companies, and representing varied industries. We have strong links to local enterprise support agencies as well as education and training organisations. With our experience, wide knowledge base and relevant links we are very much aware of the needs of local businesses and respond to them in a practical and informed way.
