In light of feedback from members and the shared benefits of such networks, 2019 saw the launch of a Board Secretaries' Network as an additional feature of Governance Forum membership. The Network is run in association with the The Chartered Governance Institute. The Network convenes at least twice each year and brings together Board Secretaries from the public, non-profit and private sectors to discuss common issues, good practices and approaches.

The Network is a complementary aspect of Forum membership, but Board Secretaries may join the Network directly if their organisation is not a Forum member. For more information, please contact the Governance Forum Team (governance@ipa.ie)
