Insititute of Directors relaunches in Bermuda

The Institute of Directors Bermuda Branch (IoD) has announced that the organisation has revitalised after a four-year hiatus.

The IoD is a non-partisan business organisation founded in London by Royal Charter in 1903, currently with around 37,000 members worldwide. The IoD is dedicated to providing directors with the information and advice they require to help their business succeed. Membership spans the whole spectrum of international business leadership, from the largest international companies to the smallest private firms.

The Bermuda branch of the Institute of Directors was founded in 1991.

Roger Gillett, chairman of the Institute of Directors Bermuda Branch, said: “It’s exciting to have reconvened the Institute of Directors Bermuda Branch. Bermuda has a very unique position at the crossroad of the USA and UK and regulation is becoming more and more complex so it’s important that Bermuda-based directors are up to speed with the latest developments in corporate governance and directors’ responsibilities. We hope that our educational programme and networking opportunities will provide an avenue for directors to grow their knowledge and skill base.”

At the same time, a new Board of Directors has been appointed until the next Annual General Meeting. The board includes: Roger Gillett, Chairman; Rochelle Simons — Vice-chairman and Educational Programme Officer; Judith Hall-Bean Secretary; Derrick Lightbourne Treasurer; Caroline Foulger — Membership Officer; Elizabeth Tee — Public Relations Officer; Committee members Jill Husbands, Ray Madeiros; Tracy Packwood (Member of the Education subcommittee); Horst Finkbeiner; Andy McComb (Member of the Membership subcommittee), Monica Dobbie, Roy Bray (Member of the Membership subcommittee).

The Bermuda branch will celebrate their relaunch with a cocktail party for members tonight at Ascot’s. Anyone interested in becoming a member should contact the Membership Committee on iod.bermuda@iod.net.
