The Institute of Directors (IoD) in Ireland is a dynamic network with 3,000 members drawn from companies large and small in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors. As the foremost voice in the debate on improving corporate governance standards, IoD Ireland is dedicated to developing and improving the effectiveness and performance of directors and boards throughout Ireland.

IoD Members

Our membership is made up of the most forward thinking and successful business leaders in Ireland, and includes chief executives/managing directors, chairpersons, non-executive directors, senior executives and entrepreneurs.

Play to Your Strengths

As a member of IoD Ireland, we offer a wide range of resources designed for your personal and professional development as a business leader.
