Institute of Directors (IoD)

The Institute of Directors (IoD) was founded in 1903 and within three years they were awarded a Royal Charter to support, represent and set standards for business leaders nationwide.

IOD's objective is to ensure its members views are taken into account when the government is reviewing policy, legislation, or seeking the opinions of the wider business community.

Membership will equip you with a range of resources - including access to business information, training, professional expertise, networking opportunities, and flexible working spaces - all of which are designed to help members strengthen and build on their own success.


As a condition of members continued registration as a Chartered Director, they must undertake and maintain a record of CPD. Chartered Directors should undertake in the region of 30 hours CPD per year.

Chartered members should keep a detailed record of their CPD, and be able to provide it to the IoD on request. As part of the auditing process, further details may be requested.
