Frank Daly addresses audience

NAMA Chairman Frank Daly was the guest speaker at the launch.

The official launch of the Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland took place on April 12 at the Aviva Stadium and was attended by over 250 guests.

Speeches were made by Joint Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland Presidents Kersten Mehl and Peter Stapleton, who welcomed the launch of the new Society and its role in enhancing, advancing and enforcing professional standards in construction, land and property.

The guest speaker for the launch was Frank Daly, Chairman of NAMA, who provided a very informative overview of NAMA’s plans to contribute to a re-activation of the property market, to generate transactions in the market and to act as a source of liquidity for potential buyers.

Incoming Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland President John Curtin also gave an address outlining the purpose of the new organisation and its role in setting and enforcing high standards of professionalism in the industry.

There was extensive media coverage of the launch, in national newspapers and on the web, including a special feature in The Irish Times.
