Irish Network Boston Welcomes You to the Irish Network USA 2015 National Conference Page
It is a pleasure to welcome you to Irish Network Boston (IN Boston). Since its inception in 2010, our organization has worked tirelessly to promote the enduring link between Ireland and the United States. Buoyed by unique events, member to member networking opportunities, partnerships and information sharing with local and national sister Irish organizations, IN Boston exemplifies a sincere commitment to engaging the Irish diaspora – including Irish born, Irish Americans and friends of Ireland. Our goal is to celebrate our mutual interests in Irish culture, business, education, and social/community initiatives by providing opportunities and experiences for all of our members. Our network was one of the first chapters to be founded under our umbrella organization, Irish Network USA (IN USA), which is now 20 chapters strong and continues to grow.
From Boston to California, collectively Irish Network is comprised of some 4,000 members, all of whom demonstrate a tangible allegiance to Ireland and everything it represents. We are proud to host the 2015 Irish Network USA National Conference and are looking forward to welcoming you to our city.

Connecting humans with Tech and with each other
"Born, bred and buttered" in Phibsborough, Dublin, I've lived in the Seattle area since 1993 - thanks to the cross-Atlantic opportunities at Microsoft, where I'm an Engineer in Bing. I enjoy helping to plan the Irish Network-Seattle's Business & Networking events, which foster human as well as business connections locally, and between the US and Ireland. Despite the proliferation of ways to communicate electronically, our human-to-human connections may not be developing over time: building our network benefits our members and also our local and in-Ireland communities.
