The Australian Institute of Company Directors is a national organisation with seven state divisions, each of which is represented on a National Board. Overall governance is by the National Board consisting of 12 directors.

There are four national directors, one of whom is the chairman, and seven division representatives. The division representatives on the board appoint the chairman and national directors after each annual general meeting.

The chief executive officer may be appointed managing director by resolution of the board.


Membership provides access to valued professional support, independent strategic briefings, quality professional development and a range of connections designed to enhance the careers of directors and the effectiveness of boards.

There are four categories of membership and each category is dependent upon experience.
