Become a member

People who have roles in company secretary, governance, risk management, compliance, AML/CFT matters are encouraged to obtain the membership of the Institute.

The journey to membership starts from registering as a student, progressively becoming a Graduate after completion of the Chartered Governance Qualifying Programme (CGQP), and electing as an Associate or a Fellow upon fulfilment of admission requirements set by CGI and the Institute.

Dual memberships and designations
Upon successful election, Fellows and Associates become members of both CGI and the Institute. They are also granted with the dual designations of Chartered Secretary and Chartered Governance Professional, which can better reflect the diverse governance roles that members are playing in the current corporate world.

See the diagram below for the illustration of route to membership.
