It is with great excitement that we announce that Chartered Secretaries New Zealand is now Governance New Zealand! The rebranding process is underway, but until the new website is complete, please continue to visit us at

Governance New Zealand’s vision is “to be the professional body of choice for executives and managers involved in efficient and effective corporate management and governance”.

All of New Zealand benefits from better governance practice. Governance New Zealand is the only professional association in New Zealand that has a sole focus on the practice of governance. We are dedicated to providing governance leadership and our members are professionals represented in all industry sectors.

The new name Governance New Zealand reflects our strategies for growth and will provide new opportunities in the field of governance, risk management and compliance.

Governance New Zealand supports a career in governance and provides a pathway to membership of the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators (ICSA International).

A new era for New Zealand in best governance practice is about to begin!
