The Corporate Governance Association of Ireland (CGAI), in association with Mason Hayes & Curran, is delighted to invite you to a seminar in the offices of Mason Hayes & Curran, Barrow Street, Dublin 4 on Wednesday 19 July at 5.30pm on Corporate Governance and the Company Secretary. Registration is at 5.30pm and the seminar will start at 6.00pm sharp.

The role of the company secretary has evolved from that of “mere servant” to that of chief administrative officer. The Companies Act 2014 has also for the first time given clear statutory expression to the obligations of this role. In this seminar, experienced speakers will explain and explore the law, regulations, guidance, and expectations affecting company secretaries.


  • The statute law applying to company secretaries
  • The relationship of Company Secretary and Chair
  • The realities of the responsibilities of a 21st Century Company Secretary

Alice Murphy, Senior Associate, Mason Hayes & Curran
John Redmond, Company Secretary, ESB


Paul Egan, Of Counsel, Mason Hayes & Curran will chair the seminar and James Kavanagh, Chairman, CGAI, will open and close the session.

This seminar qualifies for one General CPD Hour under the Law Society of Ireland CPD Scheme.
