Our History: 2008 - 2018
Established in 2008, NACEC’s primary role at that time was to accelerate the establishment and growth of community enterprise centres across the regions. With support from Enterprise Ireland; the Local Enterprise Offices (County Enterprise Boards until 2014); the Local Development Groups (LDGs) and many local community-based organisations, over 250 enterprise centres and hubs were opened across communities in Ireland between 2008 and 2018.
In June 2018, a new Executive Committee was appointed to NACEC. In February 2019, this volunteer Executive was appointed as the first NACEC Board when the organisation achieved CLG (Company Limited by Guarantee) status.
