2023 Governance Digital Badge Renewal Program 

Building on the successful Private Directors Association Certificate course in Private Company Governance, we are pleased to offer an annual Badge renewal program.

This renewal program is specifically designed to enhance participants' knowledge of the role and responsibilities of a board member. By attending this program, you will have the opportunity to learn from experienced professionals, network with other board members, and gain valuable insights that will help you make informed decisions on behalf of the organization. A new 2023 digital badge will be issued upon completion of the program.

As a board member or someone seeking a board position, this program is recommended to ensure your board skills stay current, aligned and valuable to companies and their stakeholders.

In this refresher course, you will:

  • Learn how to prepare and behave as a successful Board member.
  • Learn 12 principles that support corporate value.
  • Learn what to do if the company is facing insolvency.

We strongly encourage all PDA members to take advantage of this opportunity and participate in the renewal program. It is an investment in your own professional development as well as the success of your board.
