The Irish Business Organization of New York (IBO) holds over 25 events a year, including its monthy evening networking events, its monthly business breakfasts, and its quarterly women's networking lunch.  The IBO also hosts a St.Patrick's Day party, Summer Party and Christmas Party. Every year the IBO marches in the St.Patrick's Day parade. The organization also sponsors numerous other events, which provide opportunities for networking, professional development, education, inspiration and friendship among members. 

In 2015, the IBO launched it's Global Membership, welcoming new members from outside the USA to connect with the IBO business community. 

The Irish Business Organization of New York was founded in 1973. At it's inception the organization was named The Irish Insurance and Reinsurance Society, a name reflecting that it's founding members were insurance professionals.

As early as their second meeting, the name was shortened to the Irish Insurance Society and in 1977 was changed to the Irish Insurance Society of New York. The founding members created the organization to develop an information and education network that all of the members could contribute to and benefit from. As the organization grew its wider value to the Irish and Irish-American business community as a whole became apparent. Thus, the organization was renamed The Irish Business Organization of New York. In 1990, the IBO was incorporated as a non-profit organization.
