A national membership association, Governance Institute of Australia advocates for a community of 43,000 governance and risk management professionals, equipping members with the tools to drive better governance within their organisation.​​

They tailor our resources for members in the listed, unlisted and not-for-profit sectors, and ensure their member’s voice is heard loudly. ​​

As the only Australian provider of chartered governance accreditation, they offer a range of short courses, certificates and postgraduate study to help further the knowledge and education of the fast-growing governance and risk management profession. ​​

They run a strong program of thought leadership, research projects and news publications and draw upon our membership of the Chartered Governance Institute to monitor emerging global trends and challenges to ensure members are prepared.​​

Their members know that governance is at the core of every organisation — and in these tumultuous times, that good governance is more important than ever before.​
