The Swiss Institute of Directors (SIoD) is partnering with the Chartered Governance Institute (CGI), the leading global network for corporate governance professionals with 9 affiliated members. The partnership was announced on October 25, 2023 at the Board Secretary Circle in Zurich. The partnership will provide privileged access for members to the offerings of the respective partner organization as well as include the organization of joint events.
The Board Foundation, with its development entity Swiss Board School and its network organization Swiss Institute of Directors, has a long tradition of training and networking corporate governance professionals such as board secretaries. “Board secretaries play a central role in the good functioning of the board; their support is therefore fully in line with our mission to empower board leaders.” Michael Hilb, Chair of the Board Foundation, states, “We are proud to offer the members of our Board Secretary Chapter access to an international network of national institutes, as we already offer the board members through our collaboration with GNDI and ecoDa.”
