The professional body

As the international qualifying and membership body for governance professionals, we train, qualify and support those working in governance at all levels. We also champion the value of good governance and the contribution of qualified governance professionals and company secretaries to successful organisations.

All students of our qualifications are student members of the Institute, which gives you full access to support, networks and resources and connects you to your fellow learners.
