ICSA affiliateship is designed for company secretaries, legal counsels, lawyers and everyone with responsibility for governance, risk and compliance in organisations of all sizes, including businesses, trusts and charities. Affiliateship is a unique relationship with ICSA, separate from ICSA membership status - if you are interested in ICSA membership or becoming a chartered secretary, please find out more in our Membership hub.

Join our supportive professional community for access to expertise, guidance and development from the UK's leading governance body. Affiliates enjoy:

  • practical advice on how to establish good governance in your organisation
  • briefings on the latest statutory developments and ways to respond to them
  • preferential access to practical, inspiring professional development activities
  • exclusive discounts on ICSA content, training and many other business and recreational purchases from selected partners
  • opportunities to extend your network in your local area and across the world
  • career support and guidance.
