Continuous Professional Development

Members are encouraged to continuously keep abreast of the current corporate governance landscape and upgrade their skills, knowledge and mindset in accordance to the ICDM Directors Competency Framework and Directors Development Pathway.

The Continuous Professional Development or CPD Points is a mechanism to help members to keep track on such effort and CPD Points will be issued whenever members are involved in the following activities:

  • Attending programmes and events organised by ICDM or by other organisations;

  • Contributing to the development of directorship professionalism by authoring books, writing articles, speaking engagement, teaching, being a panellist, and being a mentor.


Typically, 1 CPD Point is equivalent to 1 hour of training or contributing.

CPD Points from ICDM programmes and events are automatically recorded in your CPD Dashboard. You need to log into your account to register for the said programmes and events.

CPD activities through other organisations and through personal contributions shall be manually submitted by members via the CPD Dashboard for ICDM’s consideration.

As a member completes the ICDM programmes and events, the relevant Director Competency will be greyed-out to indicate completion in the portal.
