Director Training

Leadership Training

Skilled and educated directors drive governance and steer corporate direction in registered clubs - so it's imperative they stay on the forefront with their professional development.

The Club Directors Institute (CDI) is the professional association for club directors and managers. Membership provides full access to all the training, development, tools and templates that you and your club need to meet your compliance and governance obligations, and improve operations and financial viability. 

The Club Directors Institute was created in 2001 to drive the club industry‚Äôs governance training and education. Over the past 19 years, CDI has been instrumental in implementing the recommendations from 2008 IPART enquiry and, more recently, the Murdoch Report 2017. By creating and developing courses, seminars and publications, CDI ensures the industry stays at the forefront of local and international governance trends.
