The Fingal Chamber Council established the Fingal Chamber Community Committee in 2020.
The Fingal Chamber Community Committee will be composed of representatives of the Chamber Board/Council, Patron Supporters, people working with community organisations, and member representatives are chosen for their independence, experience and understanding of corporate social responsibility dimensions.
