Institute of Directors (IoD)

The Institute of Directors (IoD) was created in 1903 and was granted a Royal Charter three years later to promote, represent, and set standards for business executives across the country. The IOD's goal is to guarantee that the views of its members are taken into account when the government discusses policy, legislation, or soliciting the views of the larger business community. Membership provides access to a variety of services, such as business information, development, professional knowledge, networking opportunities, and flexible working spaces, all of which are aimed to help members develop and expand on their own accomplishments. Members must complete and keep a record of CPD as a condition of their continuous registration as a Chartered Director. Chartered Directors should devote around 30 hours, which can be requested to be checked at random.
