Governance NZ

Affiliated Membership

Affiliated membership provides professional recognition of the achievement, value and capability of those who have qualified via our non-chartered route. It is open to those who have achieved part qualified status on the Professional Education Programme which leads to chartered membership.

Entry requirements

Students are not required to have a degree or relevant professional experience to study towards Affiliated (non-chartered) membership

Students are required to successfully complete three modules from the Programme:
Corporate Governance
Corporate Law
Finance for Decision Making

Professional recognition

Affiliated membership is denoted by the use of the post-nominals CIS(Affiliated) and acknowledges your commitment to our code of professional ethics and conduct and to keeping your skills up-to-date with continuing professional development.

International recognition

As a Chartered or Affiliated member, you belong to an international governance community and if you take the opportunity to live and work in another country, your membership is transferable across any of the nine divisions of the Institute of Chartered Secretaries & Administrators (ICSA Global).
