IoD Chartered Ambassadors

Chartered Director is now represented by Regional Ambassadors who are working with their Regional Directors/Chairmen and Pall Mall.

Chartered Director Ambassadors' activity is dedicated to the generation of awareness, creation of news, networks and activities that raise the profile of Chartered Director. The IoD regions are critical to the growth of the Institute and, in particular, in supporting members' interests, influencing or creating awareness as appropriate, and sustaining the branches as focal points for member activity. C Dir is the only Chartered qualification for Directors and as such, we seek to engage with the business, investor and sectoral communities to communicate the value of director development and the need for effective boards to sustain business success.

IoD is proud to announce its Regional Chartered Director Ambassadors as follows and in doing so, recognises the work of all those Chartered Directors in the regions who have dedicated time to actively supporting the qualification and those who hold it.
