ICBAN was established in 1995 to deal with the unique economic and social needs of the Central Border Region. The eight member Councils in the network are ABC Council, Cavan, Donegal, Fermanagh and Omagh, Leitrim, Mid Ulster, Monaghan and Sligo.
Cllr McNeill, who is from Kilmore, has been a member of the Management Board since 2019 and served as Vice-Chair in his initial year.
Councillor McNeill said it was an honour and privilege to be have been given this important role.
His key priority is implementing a new strategy document for the cross-border area, dealing with the challenges of climate change, Brexit and the pandemic.
“With regard to Brexit and the pandemic, it will be important for this cross-border organisation to ensure that the good cooperation which has been created and established over the past 25 years is not undermined or lessened by these. What these challenges really confirm for us is that cross-border cooperation is needed more so now, than ever.
“We all of course hope that 2021 will herald greater stability and enable us to attend successfully to these cross-border and regional challenges.”
