The Irish Association of Corporate Treasurers is a not-for-profit organisation having charitable status. It currently has in excess of 400 members, including practicing treasurers from major Irish public companies, multinationals and commercial state entities, as well as a significant number of smaller and medium sized companies. The Association’s aims are to encourage and promote the study and practice of treasury management in Ireland, set guidelines for best practice and act as a forum for treasurers to interact and network with their peers and service providers.
The Association organises seminars, conferences, training courses and social events for members.
The Association is a member of the European Associations of Corporate Treasurers (www.eact-group.com) and the International Group of Treasury Associations (www.igta.org) , each of which was formed to foster better contacts between treasurers and their associations world-wide, work towards a common view of technical matters of interest to treasurers and generally enhance the activities of member associations. Membership of these broader groups is advantageous from the perspective of lobbying to promote best treasury practice.
