ICAEW launches special interest group to support non-exeutive directors

The Institute of
Chartered Accountants in England and Wales
(ICAEW) has launched a special
interest group for members who are interested in becoming, or who are,
non-executive directors, to help them gain access to a range of professional
development support, designed specifically to make them effective non-executive
directors.

The new non-executive directors (NED) group will offer networking
opportunities, tailor made coaching services and training courses, subscription
to a quarterly e-newsletter providing news, views and developments and access to
a web portal which will draw together online resources for non-executive
directors.

‘Non-executive directors are essential to organisations of all sizes and from
all sectors,’ Michael Izza, ICAEW chief executive, said. ‘Chartered accountants
are uniquely placed to offer their expertise and business knowledge to any board
they join.

‘This new group will train and support members so that they are able to work
effectively as non-executive directors to challenge decisions, provide strategic
advice and contribute to the success of their organisation.’
