Ireland Network Chicago

A social, professional and cultural network for Irish, Irish-Americans and friends of Ireland in Chicago

After a competitive evaluation and interview process, I am pleased to announce that the Committee has selected Katie Fitzpatrick to serve as the Executive Director of IN Chicago.

Katie is the first executive director in the 18-year history of the Chicago chapter and the first executive director of any Ireland Network chapter in the world, which reflects the strength of our network and ambitious vision for the future of IN Chicago and our members.

Katie has a long history with IN Chicago. During her five years on the Committee, she helped develop our first-ever strategic plan and member survey. For the past two years, she has served on our Advisory Board, working to craft long-term goals and governance. As Executive Director, Katie will lead communications, fundraising and membership engagement strategies to ensure our professional development and organizational growth.

Katie’s career in public affairs includes leadership positions at the Irish Consulate in Chicago, Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce and FTI Consulting. She is a certified Irish Dance teacher (T.C.R.G.) and a 2020 Irish Echo 40 Under 40 Awardee. You can contact Katie directly here.

We look forward to this exciting new era that will enable us to better serve our members and the larger Irish community. Take this short survey to share your thoughts with Katie and our Committee.
