The Specifics of your membership

IoD-Advance-banner-2839x843_3



Am I eligible to join the IoD?

If you are responsible for strategic leadership in your organisation, you will be eligible to become a member. If you don't quite fit the standard membership criteria you can still join as an Associate member.

What's the difference between an associate and full member?

The different grades of membership are based on your individual experience. If your company turnover, budget or length of time in business doesn't meet the full member criteria you can still join as an associate.

You'll still receive all of the same benefits and when you're ready you can upgrade to full membership status.

Seek knowledge

"Membership has given me access to a network of other Directors in my local area and elsewhere, as well as some great training opportunities. I found the training provided by the IoD to be excellent, in building both knowledge and self-confidence."

Become inspired

“As I grew in my role, I embarked on the Chartered Director programme and joined the IoD, continuing to push myself to learn about corporate governance. This has led me to being a member of 5 boards.”

Remove boundaries

“It felt like a minefield to get the business support from a central trusted source. IoD membership has given me the freedom to make decisions while feeling the safety net of support of the heritage of experience and resources I can draw from the IoD”
