“It is important that the profession have this type of distinction and mark of merit and achievement. It improves a governance professional’s standing in their own company, particularly when they engage with investors, legislators, and regulators,” said Carol J. Ward, CCGP Commission Co-Chair, Senior Advisor, Corporate Governance Partners, Inc., formerly VP & Corporate Secretary Mondelēz International Inc.

Establishing the CCGP credential for corporate governance professionals, the first-of-its-kind in the United States, has long been a goal of the Society. The CCGP program is governed by a seven-person Commission independent of the Society's Board, responsible for all CCGP decision-making and administration to ensure program impartiality. Commissioners are leading corporate governance practitioners from private and in-house practice.

The certification - relevant to both law firm and in-house practitioners and other corporate governance professionals, was developed over a 2-year period by the Society and is also aligned to rigorous national accreditation standards. Governance professionals meeting eligibility requirements via a combination of experience and education and who pass the exam are awarded the CCGP. The exam covers 10 work domains and 57 job tasks identified by a diverse group of Society members and validated by an extensive survey.

Ward added, “As it evolves, the credential and certification program will help establish a common framework for what defines the corporate governance profession.”
