Your local institute

Powerful together. A global mindset.

We’re a truly global organisation, with over 29,000 members living and working in over 80 countries. We have nine local institutes worldwide supporting our membership, and qualifying aspiring governance professionals through our internationally recognised and portable training.

All our members qualify under an internationally recognised and portable qualifying programme. Our members are entitled to use the post-nominals of either FCG, ACG or CG(Affiliated). Our membership is fully transferable between countries and local institutes depending on where the member is based.

Each of our nine local institutes has its own governing committee, staff and offices, allowing our members to simultaneously be supported locally and be a member of the global institute.

When a country doesn’t have enough members to support a localised institutional structure, membership is automatically registered to The Chartered Governance Institute UK & Ireland.
