“Covid-19 has presented a number of challenges over the past two years, and as we emerge from the pandemic, we remain fully committed to making Laois the ideal location to live, work and do business.

“It is fantastic to be recognised for our hard work and collaboration on projects which benefit our members and the wider community in Laois.

“These projects would not be possible without the incredible support of our members, Laois County Council, and other organisations across the county.”

Laois Chamber President, Alison Browne, added: “‘We are thrilled to be shortlisted for two Chamber of the Year awards.

“We value our members and always keep adding value to their membership so we are delighted to be nominated for our Membership Initiative.

“As a Chamber, we believe in collaboration and have developed a fantastic working relationship with Laois County Council.

“Progress happens when we all work well together. The nomination for the Local Authority Collaboration means a lot to us.”

The winners of the nine award categories and the overall Chamber of the Year award will be announced at an in-person awards ceremony on June 2.
