Chartered Governance Institute New Zealand

Governance Leaders in New Zealand.

What is governance

Governance encompasses the system by which an organisation is controlled and operates, and the mechanisms by which it, and its people, are held to account. Ethics, risk management, compliance and administration are all elements of governance.


Membership is open to people from all backgrounds and experiences because governance itself is wide in scope.

Our purpose is to support our members with their lifelong governance journey and for members and their boards to be the best they can be.

Professional Development in Governance

If you are looking to accelerate your career in governance, update your skill set or change careers, we have a wide range of training and events available.
