IoD-Ghana Launches 3rd Edition of Directors Handbook
The Institute of Directors-Ghana, in collaboration with the Bank of Ghana and other key stakeholders, has launched the third edition of the National Corporate Governance Code, which will serve as a guide for all stakeholders on corporate governance issues.
Speaking at the book launch on Tuesday, December 13 at the Kempinski Hotel in Accra, President of the IoD-Ghana, Mr. Rockson Dogbegah, stated that the third edition of the handbook was an update of previous editions and had been revised to incorporate current trends such as the development of cyber resilient corporate institutions, essentials on Board performance evaluation and procedures of integrated thinking and reporting.
“This Handbook is a must for all organizations because it was designed to provide information on the rules, processes, regulations, systems, and mechanisms of Corporate Governance Practitioners,” Mr. Dogbegah said.
Following the book launch, the institute inducted 7 fellows and 76 members. Mr. Rockson Dogbegah advised newly inducted members and fellows of the Institute to serve as Corporate Governance ambassadors.
” Your induction today is a call to service both within and outside of your organizations. The main call is to constantly raise the bar of good corporate governance practice and business ethics as you carry out your roles and responsibilities as directors and business leaders.” he added.
The well-planned event culminated in an awards ceremony honoring business leaders who had exemplified ethical leadership and good corporate governance practices in their organizations.
Among the dignitaries who attended the event were Mr. Stephen Asiedu, Head of Corporate Affairs, SIGA, who represented the Director-General of SIGA, Ambassador Edward Boateng, Ms. Sandra Thompson, Board Secretary of the Bank of Ghana, and Hon. Osei-Assibey Antwi, Executive Director of the National Service Scheme, who was also inducted as a member of the Institute.
