In becoming a Corporate Member of CBDC for and annual fee of $5,000, your organization will join our growing membership receiving the following benefits:
We are the nationally respected voice of our members with various stakeholders, including regulatory bodies, governments, the corporate director community and the media. We also represent our members on the Federal Advisory Council as an ex-officio member of the 26-member body to promote the participation of women on public and private corporate boards.
We showcase our members' leadership with stakeholder groups to ensure our members are widely recognized for their efforts. The Council's media coverage and public recognition helps our members position their organizations as being diversity leaders, attracting top talent from Canada's increasingly diverse population.
The Council provides consulting services at a preferred member rate and extends an annual $1000 credit on consulting fees to members.
Each year, we will release the Diversity 50, Canada's first-ever database of qualified men and women from across Canada with strong competencies that align with the requirements of many Canadian boards. The 50 are introduced to directors of Council Member organizations each year at exclusive receptions held in Calgary, Montréal, Toronto and Vancouver.
Members receive a $500 credit towards the enrollment fee for managers and executives in CBDC's Get on Board Governance Education Program taught by directors and governance experts across the country. There is also a lower enrollment fee for all program attendees from Member organizations ($500 off Level I, $2,000 off Level II). Level II participants will now receive certification upon completion of the program requirements: Fellow in Board Governance.
