About Irish Network USA
Irish Network USA (IN-USA) is the national umbrella organization integrating the INs that exist in various cities around the U.S. (currently 12). It allows members of the networks to connect with their peers and to develop relationships that will foster success in their business, economic and social ventures. IN USA will also be a resource to assist Irish, Irish Americans, and friends of Ireland in other cities with forming their own local IN to serve their community, and the national connection will allow for greater collaboration and success for all. IN USA was formally inaugurated by then taoiseach Brian Cowen at a reception in California in March 2010 and has since served as a means of connecting all of the IN chapters.
“What was once an opportunity for Irish-born residents of the U.S. to develop contacts with each other while living and working far from home, has now become a wonderful nationwide network of not only Irish-born, but also Irish Americans and ‘friends’ of Ireland who share in a desire to further strengthen the economic, social and cultural ties between our two great countries,” said Steve Lenox of IN NJ and newly elected co-president of IN USA.
“We are excited about the enthusiasm that has surrounded this organization since its inception,” said John Murphy, IN NY and who was also elected to serve as a co-President.
“With vibrant chapters in cities like New Orleans, Denver, Philadelphia, and Phoenix already organizing events to accommodate a national crowd, members of IN USA will undoubtedly provide a network of Irish American business and social contacts for our members to capitalize on across the nation,” he said.
One of our many IN-NOLA beneits entitles members the ability to attend other chapter events and an invitation to a planned national event in 2012. Plans are also under way to provide members access to a national directory of all IN-USA members.
