Founded in 1992, the Belgian Investor Relations Association (BelIR, formerly BIRA) concluded in 2000 a Cooperation Agreement with the Federation of Enterprises in Belgium (FEB). BelIR has recently embarked on a new ambitious project aimed at strengthening its role.
BelIR’s mission comprises :
The promotion of the investor relations as a discipline as well as its best practices in compliance with the statutes and regulations applicable to this domain;
The promotion of its Members’ professional development;
To be a forum of exchanges and reflections for the issuers and the investor community in general;
To ensure a representation at the national, European and international levels.
BelIR organizes four Members’ meetings per year and two General Assemblies (in June and December). They take place at the Federation of Enterprises in Belgium (FEB) and at the headquarters of Member companies. A guided tour of the company is usually organized beforehand and a reception or dinner is organized after the Members’ meeting.
The directors of BelIR deal with the issues relating to their track throughout the year. Four BelIR BOD meetings are organized per year at the FEB, at least three weeks before each BelIR Members’ meeting, as well as a New Year Lunch in January, in order to discuss about the development of the tracks and the organization of the Members’ meetings.
