On 31 July, the current membership year ends. During the first week of June we will be inviting graduates and members to renew their annual membership (our student campaign will get underway week commencing 22 June). The invitation will be sent by email, if we hold an email address for you. To prevent this important communication being treated as junk/spam, please ensure that you mark our email address - email@example.com as a safe/trusted address. Remember the contact details we hold for you can be updated in real time via your MyCG account. Details of the fees for the new membership year will be published after the CGIUKI Council meets on 19 May. We have refreshed our FAQs; if you have any questions please take a look at these first as you will hopefully find the answer you are looking for. If not, please email the membership team firstname.lastname@example.org with Renewal 2021 in the subject line.
If your circumstances have changed since last year, or you want to discuss your renewal, please get in touch with our membership team. A concessionary rate may be available to students and members who are unemployed, on long term sick leave or parental leave. Criteria applies, please refer to the Concessionary rate policy for further guidance.
This is also the time of year when members will be thinking about updating their CPD log. We understand that for some members, completing the requisite 20 hours of CPD (or 35 for members in Public Practice) may be difficult due to the current situation. We are therefore applying a degree of flexibility by asking members to record what CPD activity they have undertaken, even if they have not been able to meet the mandated number of hours. The Institute is continuing to offer online CPD courses and we also accept informal CPD towards the annual requirement. You can update your CPD log online here.
So much has changed for us all over the last 12 months, and there are undoubtably fresh challenges ahead as we now think about a world post Covid and returning to some sort of normality (and the office!). As your professional body, we remain committed to providing the support that you need, particularly as governance professionals continue to play such a critical role in guiding boards in every sector on the road to recovery.
