On 31 July, the current membership year ends. During the first week of June we will be inviting graduates and members to renew their annual membership (our student campaign will get underway in July). The invitation will be sent by email, if we hold an email address for you. To prevent this important communication being treated as junk/spam, please ensure that you mark our email address - firstname.lastname@example.org as a safe/trusted address. Remember the contact details we hold for you can be updated in real time via your MyCG account. Details of the fees for the new membership year are given below and we have also developed a series of FAQs, to answer any questions you may have.
Change of circumstances
If your circumstances have changed since last year, or you want to discuss your renewal, please get in touch with our membership team. You can also call the team on +44 20 7612 4741. Though we are now working from home, we are still here for you and ready to help between 9.30am and 5:00pm UK time.
Updating your CPD log
This is also the time of year when members will be thinking about updating their CPD log. We understand that for some members, completing the requisite 20 hours of CPD (or 35 for members in Public Practice) may be difficult due to the current situation. We are therefore applying a degree of flexibility by asking members to record what CPD activity they have undertaken, even if they have not been able to meet the mandated number of hours. Remember, the Institute is now offering a number of online, virtual CPD courses [link to our courses] and we also accept informal CPD towards the annual requirement. You can update your CPD log online here.
So much has changed for us all recently, and there are undoubtably fresh challenges ahead. As your professional body, we remain committed to providing the support that you need, particularly when governance professionals are playing such a critical role in guiding boards in every sector through crisis to recovery.
We appreciate the feedback that many of you have already given us. As the impact of the pandemic deepens, we will continue to develop new material to keep you abreast of the governance issues arising in this unprecedented environment. Work to extend our range of digital services is also ongoing.
We look forward to continuing to support your work and your professional development throughout the forthcoming membership year.
