Concern receives special recognition accolade at Good Governance Awards
Concern Worldwide warmly accepted the ‘special recognition’ award at the inaugural Good Governance Awards in Dublin last night.
The Carmichael Centre Good Governance Awards recognise, support and encourage adherence to good governance practice and excellence in the not-for-profit sector.
Speaking at the ceremony at the Davy Group headquarters last night, Chairman of Concern Mr Tom Shipsey said:
This is an important recognition of the transparency and strength Concern has shown over its 48 year history and we are delighted to receive this award. We pride ourselves on our governance arrangement, adhering to best practice and we have a deep rooted belief in the importance of transparency and accountability.
We are always overwhelmed by the huge generosity of the Irish public over the years and this award assures them that their donations, no matter how small, is spent wisely and well as Concern continues to assist those in greatest need in some of the world’s most impoverished areas.
The awards aim to facilitate the promotion and recognition of good governance practice and help to increase public trust in the sector.
Diarmaid O'Corrbui CEO, Carmichael Centre added that "for the last six years Concern has won the Leinster Society award for the Best Public Accounts for the non-profit sector, a benchmark others should aspire to and we acknowledge that excellence.”
