Directors Academy is a one-and- a-half day program for new board members that focuses on corporate governance and leading boardroom practices. This program provides an intensive and highly-focused interactive dialogue between participants and leading executives, corporate directors, and policy makers on critical issues facing boards today. The program’s small and targeted environment affords peer-to-peer exchange and the opportunity for participants to connect with sitting, seasoned board members.

Directors Academy is held twice annually, in the spring and fall and limited to 12 participants to ensure a realistic boardroom experience and effective dialogue. Upon completion of two Directors Academy programs (e.g. spring and fall) participants are awarded a Certificate in Director Education and walk away from the program with an understanding of the increasingly complex and ever-changing role of a corporate board member prepared to contribute to discussions occurring in the boardroom.

In its fifth year with over 40 graduates, CCG has developed a robust Directors Academy alumni program to emphasize its commitment to continued director education and support graduates’ journeys to the boardroom. Directors Academy Alumni receive special access to resources such as current thought leadership, future Directors Academy program resources, and priority invitations to key Institute programs. The Institute also hosts alumni board biographies on its website, creating a repository of board-ready individuals for Nominating and Governance Committees who are seeking new board candidates.
