The AICD asked members to give their views on the Forward Governance Agenda. Here’s what they had to say and what we are doing in response.
Members support a revised AICD Member Code of Conduct with a focus on clear standards of practice, and increased Director Professional Development obligations.
The AICD should lead debate on directors' duties, and engage with directors, stakeholders and legal experts on the best interests duty and increasing resources for members.
Only a third of members consider existing director accountability mechanisms to be 'adequate'.
Culture is a high priority for directors. Members want practical guidance on the governance of culture and remuneration.
Voice of governance
AICD’s members have also clearly expressed a desire that AICD continue to be a clear and leading voice on good governance practice.
