We are delighted to announce that our Annual Rural Seminar will once again be taking place in November.
At last year's Seminar we looked at the issues and opportunities facing the sector in relation to the Brexit referendum in the UK.
This year, we will examine the developments and discussions over the past year and the related impact on the rural surveying sector in Ireland.
Our line-up of speakers so far includes:
Justin McCarthy, CEO, Irish Farmers Journal, who will deliver an outlook for the rural industry.
Mairead McGuinness MEP, First Vice-President of the European Parliament, will deliver a Brexit update from an EU perspective as well as the CAP programme developments and next steps.

Jim Doyle, Senior Partner, RDA Accountants will deliver an update on taxation, pensions and wealth management.
