New ICS Council Officers

At the recent ICS Annual General Meeting earlier in November, the ICS Council appointed its new officers for the coming year.  

Following the end of his term, Mike Hinchey stood down as president after three years in the position. We would like to thank Mike for his time and commitment to ICS.  

Declan Brady was appointed as the new ICS President and Professor Tiziana Margaria was appointed as the new Vice President. Mary Sharp and John Ward were re-appointed as Honorary Secretary and Honorary Treasurer, respectively.  

Declan Brady commented: “With so many different challenges facing Ireland, there are many opportunities too; this is an exciting time for the Irish Computer Society. 

The impacts of COVID have left us with a renewed focus on core concerns of the IT Professional; we have a great base to capitalise on leading the profession out of the pandemic. 

Post BREXIT, looking at new ways of cooperating and inter-working across the EU, and between the EU and the UK, is a key area. 

We’ve a great team, and great services, here at the Irish Computer Society. 

The Council and I are looking forward to working with Mary, Frank and the team in this new phase of the Irish Computer Society. 

I want to thank Mike for his leadership and stewardship through this period of uncertainty; we are able to look forward with great confidence.”
