We have been working tirelessly on our initiative to set up an ASEAN IoD Network (AIN) in the past few months. Happy to announce that ICDM members can now look forward to an expanded reciprocal membership arrangement with the Vietnam Institute of Directors, cross-border board opportunities and regional members events at the board level.
Come and join us to commemorate the collaboration with the signing of MOU between both the institutions, followed by a special talk on “Rethinking Governance and Board Resilience in the Pandemic Era”.
ICDM Members would have received an email with the registration link. We hope to see you there!
