The member organisations of DCCI, which include GANS (Guilds, Associations, Networks and Societies) as well as corporate bodies, play a pivotal role in DCCI’s activities and supports in Ireland. The engagement of DCCI’s member organisations and its registered clients is instrumental in informing its strategic plans for developing the design and craft sector. It enables the delivery of many DCCI initiatives across the island of Ireland. As at 31 December, 2021 the total number of GANS was 64.
