Affiliated membership provides professional recognition of the achievement, value and capability of those who have qualified via our non-chartered route.
Individuals not wanting to pursue either of the two chartered qualifications can opt to apply for, or study towards gaining, the new Affiliated class of membership. This pathway will provide you with membership (non-chartered) of both Governance NZ and the global body - The Chartered Governance Institute. Affiliated members can opt to pursue full chartered membership at any stage by enrolling on the Professional Education Programme.
You can qualify as an Affiliated member without any requirement to study if you hold a recognised professional or pre-professional qualification (or have completed any other recognised professional development) and have at least 2-years of relevant work experience.
Affiliated membership is denoted by the use of the post-nominals CG (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.
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 Chartered Governance Institute.
