The American College of Corporate Directors has a unique membership model. Public company directors become members and participate in the majority of the educational venues free of charge. In addition, there are no dues. We have chosen sponsors of the highest caliber, whose interests and expertise are aligned with our mission, to underwrite a percentage of ACCD costs. These sponsors are nationally recognized as being among the very best in their field, able to provide our membership and their boards with services and expertise in corporate governance at the highest level.
ACCD members have the opportunity to hear experts in our sponsor's field opine on issues critical to their successful directorships. Each sponsor has a designated representative who attends every event and is charged with providing special access, as well as help and advice to members. Permanent and strong relationships between members and sponsors is common.
Sponsors and their ACCD representative are listed below with a description of their services.
