ATI Western Society

ATI’s Western Society is one of four activity hubs that drive interaction and engagement between our members and their Institute.

Together with the other societies (Leinster, Ulster and Munster), we organise a range of top-class educational and social events throughout the year.

The Western Society is made up of ATI students, affiliates, members and fellows living and working throughout the region. In total we have almost 1,000 members of the society!

Social events we’ve run include trips to The Titanic Centre in Belfast, and the Annual Christmas Party.

CPD Events

Our regular CPD events focus on key skill areas such as payroll, Excel and legislative and technical knowledge training, as well as current events that affect the profession such as Brexit and GDPR.

Members can gain all eight of the mandatory accredited CPD hours via Western District Society face-to-face CPD events, which are generally delivered in Claremorris.

District Society Committee Members are drawn from our Members register, together with a current Student. The members of the Committee are as follows:

Mary Clarke - Chair
Maria O'Hagan - Vice Chair
Majella Burke - Secretary
Margaret Fahey - Treasurer
Gwen Fraser
Fiona Maguire
Anne Marie Murphy

As Chair of the Society, I represent the Western Society Committee at ATI’s Member Services Committee. Chaired by Johnny McElhinney, this committee brings together all four District Society Chairs, the Chairs of our Members Working Groups and ATI staff to discuss the evolving needs of our membership and ways that we can improve our service to them.

We regularly write out to you with invitations to our events, and we would encourage you to attend. They are a means for you to engage with your Institute and each other, and provide excellent networking opportunities.

You should also keep your eye on ATI’s website for news stories and photo galleries from these events.

Your Committee looks forward to meeting you at the various events we have planned in 2020 – let’s make it a great year for the Western Accounting Technician Community!
