This directory enables you to verify ICSA membership. Our members are part of an international community of professionals with the qualifications and experience to enable good governance. You can choose to search the whole membership roll or just those who are part of our public practice scheme.
ICSA members are qualified in governance, compliance, strategy, finance, law, regulation, risk, and boardroom dynamics. They have the experience to develop and lead good governance in the organisations they serve.
All members adhere to a code of professional conduct and ethics, undertake ongoing professional learning and can use post-nominals after their names. The letters signify active membership of ICSA, represented as CIS (Chartered Institute of Secretaries), and the membership grade achieved; Fellow, Associate or Affiliated.
Our chartered members represent the highest levels of achievement in the governance profession as Fellows and Associates. Fellows and Associates of over five years' standing may use the designation of Chartered Secretary or Chartered Governance Professional, according to their individual preference and context. Those who have not yet achieved five years as an Associate member, use the designation Chartered Secretary.
