In the spring of 2021, Corporate Board Member merged with the American College of Corporate Directors™ (ACCD). The merger provides professional director credential options to public company directors looking to demonstrate their commitment to continuing education. A certification from ACCD is an important credential for board leadership, and a useful tool for members interested in acquiring additional board seats. Credits are earned through a variety of Corporate Board Member and ACCD online and in-person events and programming.
