BoardWide is our corporate membership option. Your board can become a BoardWide member and demonstrate its commitment to raising the governance standards in New Zealand.

As a BoardWide member, your organisation will receive:

  • a reduced subscription for every member of your board of 20% – usually $525 per member, reduced to $420 per member including GST
  • no joining fee for your board members – usually $150 including GST
  • an additional copy of IoD’s flagship publication The Four Pillars of Governance Best Practice
  • a free subscription to boardroom magazine for the period of BoardWide membership
  • one free advertisement on the DirectorVacancies listing
  • acknowledgement as a BoardWide member in IoD’s annual report
  • the ability to include the IoD’s BoardWide member logo in your company’s annual report and corporate profile.

To qualify, every member of your board must be, or become, a member of the IoD and will receive all the benefits of membership.

How does it work?

  • A BoardWide member organisation must have four or more board directors.
  • Only one invoice will be issued per BoardWide member organisation.
  • All board members of a BoardWide member organisation will receive the full benefits of IoD membership they would usually expect for the category of IoD membership to which they have been admitted.
  • Board members who are on multiple boards will only pay a membership subscription once.
  • BoardWide member organisations can opt to include their CEO (and other senior managers who work with the board) as part of their BoardWide membership.
  • A BoardWide member, is an entity, company or organisation, as opposed to an individual member, and is not entitled to vote or be an officer of the IoD.
  • BoardWide membership is by application to the IoD Council and is subject to terms and conditions.
