The Ireland - U.S. Council for Commerce & Industry, Inc. was founded in 1963. The purpose of this Council is to build business links between America and Ireland. The Council was started by American and Irish business leaders. In pursuit of its aim, the Council hosts frequent events in Ireland and in the United States.
The Council also operates a variety of scholarship and student internship programs, stages occasional seminars and, from time to time, undertakes various publishing initiatives in national business media in the United States to promote closer commercial connections between Ireland and America.
The Council seeks also to focus on activities that will develop communications, dialogue and improved understanding between leaders in business and government on both sides of the Atlantic.
The Council is a non-profit organization and has no partisan, political or religious aims or affiliations. Considerations on such issues do not affect qualifications for membership, which is purely voluntary.
The membership ranks of the Council are comprised predominantly of senior executives in business corporations in America and Ireland—industrialists, merchants and bankers. The Council also draws membership support from representatives of the legal, accounting and engineering professions.
Honorary membership is accorded, by tradition, to both the Ambassador of the United States to Ireland and the Ambassador of Ireland to the United States.
