  • Promoting and participating in debates on the future of retirement provision in Ireland.
  • Creating opportunities for formal and informal discussion of pension issues among our members at seminars, conferences and social events.
  • Disseminating information on pension developments through high quality newsletters and publications.
  • Providing a forum for scheme trustees to discuss issues particular to their role
  • Seeking to influence developments at an EU level, mainly through our membership of PensionsEurope.
