Maximise Your Membership
Here are some tips on how to use your time effectively to get the most out of your membership:
1. Activate your Profile on the Member Information Centre (MIC)
Update/edit your profile on our Member Information Centre (MIC) to ensure your directory listing is current, correct and complete. We also recommend that you update your staff, adding new reps, and deactivating those who no longer work in the business so that the right contacts receive important updates from the Chamber.
2. Enquire about Training and Upskilling with the Fingal Chamber Skillnet
Want more productive staff, improved retention rates, increased staff motivation, cost-effective training, a skilled workforce and a competitive and progressive workplace? We provide subsidised enterprise-led skills training courses further discounted for Chamber members which can save regular users a substantial amount in costs each year. Let us know your training requirements so we can address your skills needs.
3. Have Your Say on Local and National Matters
You can engage in matters that can impact your business through regular forums (e.g. The Local Area Business Forums) and consultations (see weekly 'Business Community Update' emails for the latest). If you need to influence policy contact the Chief Executive who leads our lobbying and advocacy support.
4. Get Expert Advice on Trading Internationally
We are a leading provider of export documentation services and can issue and certify Certificates of Origin (EU Certs & Arab-Irish Certs) and other certification services for companies. All Chamber members are entitled to a discount on the export documentation services, which can save regular exporters a substantial amount in fees and charges each year.
