The Affiliates Group is made up of people who do not wish to
study our examinations but are interested in matters pertaining
to the Institute, such as corporate governance, risk management
and company secretarial practice.
The CSNZ Affiliates Program is designed for people involved
in corporate governance, compliance management and allied
fields who want information, education and networking
It meets the needs of business executives, government
business managers, accountants and solicitors who wish to keep
up-to-date with key corporate and legislative issues but are
not yet eligible for membership of CSNZ.
Participants in this group receive The Chartered Secretary,
newsletters, handbooks and invitations to Institute functions
and seminars. This provides excellent opportunities to network
with others in related areas.
You may not use our post-nominals or describe yourself as a
"Chartered Secretary". Persons in the Affiliate Group are able
to undertake subjects from our Professional Entry Programme for
their own continuing professional development and, on
completion, receive a "Certificate of Completion".
