Notice for our AAICD Members

At the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD), we recognise the value that comes from the ability to use the post nominals we issue to our members. We are currently looking at ways to improve how we acknowledge our members for their dedication and commitment to excellence in governance and continued professional development with us.

During this period of review, if you are a financial Affiliate Member (AAICD) who has successfully completed the Company Director Course assessment, you will be eligible to be upgraded to the Graduate Member grade and be issued with the GAICD post nominal. This upgrade may occur irrespective of whether you meet the career experience outlined in the Graduate Member By-Law criteria.

We encourage you to contact your local Member & Directors Executives if you have any further queries or concerns.

Please continue to check our website for updates regarding your membership and events in your state.


A continuing professional director development program called Director Professional Development applies to Member, Graduate and Fellow categories of member.

If you would like to upgrade from an Affiliate to a Member, please complete our upgrade form.

If you would like to upgrade your membership from a Member/Graduate Member to a Fellow, please read our upgrade to a Fellow application guide. Before completing the application form, contact your local membership team who can outline the criteria for Fellow, and help you through the aplication process. Phone 1300 739 119.

For more information on the specific criteria of each category please refer to our By-Laws.
