Global Passport and Reciprocal Arrangements 

GNDI's Global Passport is a new program that provides directors access to international governance resources and events.

The Global Passport allows directors who are members of their GNDI home country organization to access benefits from affiliated director institutes at discounted rates.* This program provides global directors an opportunity to share experiences, learn from international colleagues and to keep current on business and governance trends impacting boardrooms across the world. Benefits include subscriptions to member-only publications, online governance resources, special pricing for events, board-matching services, and much more. 

How it Works

  1. Review the list of Global Passport benefits available from each participating GNDI member institute
  2. Select the institute which you wish to join and/or receive Global Passport benefits from
  3. Contact the institute directly using the contact provided or their online application link to activate your GNDI Global Passport
