The Africa Institute of Directors, Many think and talk about changing the Africa. In the present turbulent times of failing & struggling corporate, wobbly economies, unprecedented climate change and rising market risks and insecurities, it becomes imperative to think of a sustainable corporate world. In the ultimate analysis, corporates are Vital partners in development. It has since grown manifold, bringing to focus and finding solutions to some of the most burning issues related to boardroom practices, Quality, Environment Good Governance, CSR, Sustainability, Climate Change and the development agenda that many groups and organizations now talk about.

AID has over the years grown to associate with around 31,000 senior executives, representing prominent organizations from the private, public and government sectors India-wide, and now, increasingly, world-wide.

AID was one of the first to think of enhancing Governance and Sustainability through a constructive engagement, focusing on a principle-based model of corporate governance that values 7Ds- Disruption of status quo, Dispersal of Authority, Diversity, Dissent, Dialogue, Disclosure and Directors’ training for the boards to lead the change. It espouses integrity, transparency and accountability, as the competitive differentiators. Every year, AID holds a number of international conferences, on a diverse range of subjects from Corporate Governance, Sustainability, Leadership, Total Quality Management, Business Excellence, Boardroom Agenda, Competition Law, CSR, Environment and Climate change, as ways to reach out to the change makers & policy advisors.

AID forums try to transform the corporate psyche by demonstrating how ethical, responsible, transparent and equitable agenda can become the competitive advantage. It has redefined Sustainability. The wide networking and extended dialogue opportunities that it’s national & international conferences held in India and abroad provide to the fraternity of business, industry and governments are valued most by the participants.

The Africa Institute of Directors has promoted International cooperation and awareness on boardroom through various international & national conferences, training programmes, and a wide range of publications, books, hand books, winners' digest and it’s in-house monthly journal-‘Quality Times’, which has since upgraded to ‘Directors Today’.

The Africa Institute of Directors (AID) is the national association of company directors. It works closely with the authorities and regulators, and its network of members and professionals to uphold and enhance the highest standards of corporate governance and ethical conduct.

The AID’s membership comprises mainly directors of commercial companies and non-profit organisations, as well as lawyers, accountants, academics and other professionals in the field of corporate governance.

The AID has a comprehensive professional education curriculum that covers the entire spectrum of a director’s developmental needs. Numerous courses cater to the different groups of directors – from aspiring and new directors, to experienced directors and Chairmen of Boards, and the various Board Committees.

In particular, the AID provides thought leadership on corporate governance and directorship issues. It keeps directors apprised of the latest thinking and happenings through a quarterly Directors’.
