American College of Corporate Directors

The Premier Board of Director Education and Credentialing Organization

Showcase Your Commitment to Elevating Your Boardroom Performance

Since 2004, the American College of Corporate Directors (ACCD) has unified a community of executives who possess a passion for public company board service and expanding their director education to meet a shared goal: Strengthening board leadership skills to responsibly and ethically represent stakeholders.

Since then, the ACCD has grown to serve over 2,000 executives and has built a reputation as the premier educational and credentialing organization within the board community. Its mission is to provide directors with the highest standard of instruction, theory and practice surrounding the important, complex, and timely issues facing public companies today.

In March 2021, the American College of Corporate Directors merged with Corporate Board Member (a Chief Executive Group community). Through a shared heritage of independent thinking and passion for business, the combined organizations offer directors even greater opportunities for unparalleled learning, networking and certification options.
