Irish Network - USAWe are not alone!
IN-Philly is a member of Irish Network - USA ("IN-USA"). IN-USA is comprised of the various established Irish Networks across the U.S., namely: IN-New York City, IN-DC, IN-Chicago, IN-San Francisco, IN-San Diego, IN-Denver, and now IN-Philly!
IN-USA was launched by An Taoiseach (the Irish Prime Minister), Brian Cowan in March 2010. IN-USA facilitates and enables each Irish Network member to connect with each other via a virtual USA-wide network of Irish Network members.
IN-Philly will organize events with affiliate sections such as friendly sport competitions, joint speakers events, and other networking gatherings. This will aide IN-Philly members in expanding their networks beyond Philadelphia.
IN USA was first conceived by the members of the various Irish Networks (IN) across the U.S. in early 2009 and discussions and developments continued through to autumn 2009. Following the Irish Government’s initiative at the Global Irish Economic Forum at Farmleigh in September 2009, an invitation was issued to the INs by Ambassador Michael Collins to meet with him to discuss further the idea of formally connecting the INs under an umbrella organization. IN-USA was agreed upon as an organization on January 29, 2010. (extract from www.irishnetwork-usa.org)
