Welcome to the international newsletter

Our last events for 2018 were in Singapore, Hong Kong and Shanghai with our CEO, Angus Armour. Angus spoke at networking events in Singapore and Hong Kong, boardroom events in Singapore and Shanghai and as part of a panel on governance and risk in Shanghai.

Our visit to Shanghai was in part to launch the International Company Directors Course, which will return to Shanghai for the first time since 2015, in May 2019. Fiji will also play host to the International Company Directors Course, when we visit in June to run it for the first time in Nadi.

Members of the International Team travelled to Fiji in mid-February, to deliver the first Fiji Directors Course of 2019, as well as a one-day course for company secretaries and a Directors’ Briefing. The event attracted over 120 local directors and senior executives to hear from AICD Fiji Advisory Committee member, Wylie Clarke MAICD on director liabilities in Fiji.

We will return to the UAE in March, for the Annual Meeting of the Global Network of Director Institutes in Dubai. The meeting will be alongside workshops and seminars, as well as a roadshow where the AICD will meet with members and stakeholders in the region.

In this edition of the newsletter, we explore the AICD’s commitment to UN Sustainable Development Goal 16: Peace, justice and strong institutions. We will be opening our third round of the International Scholarships Program in 2019, with the aim to make governance training accessible for organisations and communities facing financial constraint.

We look forward to meeting and hearing from members around the globe in 2019.
