The corporate secretaries toolkit training workshop was held from 7-10 May 2013 at the Chartered Secretaries Southern Africa office in Johannesburg. The workshop was attended by 21 delegates from 17 countries.
As part of the CSIA corporate secretaries toolkit roll out plan, the Global Corporate Governance Forum (GCGF) organised a four-day training of trainers programme targeted at professionals training corporate secretaries with the following goals in mind:
To enhance corporate secretary training capacity by helping participants become familiar with the toolkit and learning how to use these resources. Participants developed the knowledge base and skill sets needed to lead corporate secretary education programmes that reflect international best practice adapted to regional trends and country specific needs.
To elicit from participants their views and comments on the materials, which have been developed.
The pilot training, which comprised four days of intensive training, provided trainers with input, case studies and activities to develop corporate secretary skills. The programme encouraged participants to share and discuss their own experiences and hone their methods for using adult learning techniques. The training was not a corporate governance course but a training of trainers using the corporate secretaries toolkit. Some readers may be familiar with the directors’ toolkit which has been around for the past few years.

CORPORATE SECRETARIES INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION (CSIA) STATES ITS CASE TO THE WORLD TRADE ORGANISATION (WTO) FOR INCLUSION OF US$36 BILLION BUSINESS SECTOR IN WTO TRADE IN SERVICES LISTINGS
CSIA today reported that a delegation of its members made a presentation before the Committee on Specific Commitments of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) on June 25, 2012 in Geneva, Switzerland to include a new listing in the Trade in Services business classification listings by the name of ‘CORPORATE GOVERNANCE, COMPLIANCE AND SECRETARIAL ADVISORY SERVICES’. CSIA claims this sector is worth US$36 billion annually.
CSIA was invited to make a presentation before the Committee for Specific Commitments of WTO. Accordingly a delegation of CSIA representatives went to Geneva for the presentation.
The CSIA delegation consisted of Mr. Anil Murarka, President of CSIA and Past President of the Institute of Company Secretaries of India (ICSI); Mr. Nesar Ahmad, President of ICSI; Mrs. April Chan, Past President of both CSIA and The Hong Kong Institute of Chartered Secretaries; Mr. Phillip Baldwin, Chief Executive of The Hong Kong Institute of Chartered Secretaries; Ms. Edith Shih, President of The Hong Kong Institute of Chartered Secretaries and; Mr. Russell Morrice, Head of Secretariat and Clerk to Council of The Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators (UK).
“This was truly a global initiative by a global organisation that we believe will benefit world trade,” said Mr. Anil Murarka, President of CSIA.”While the delegation was limited to those members from Hong Kong, the United Kingdom and India we were representing all 18 national bodies of corporate secretaries and governance professionals that make up the membership of CSIA. All of them played a part by lobbying their national governments prior to the presentation.”
July 20, 2012
He added “The challenge now is to keep the momentum going. CSIA is adding members all the time and each new member adds their voice and weight to the inclusion of this US$36 billion business sector which can grow even faster if it has official recognition by the WTO. The world needs more trade and CSIA is of the opinion that official recognition of corporate governance, compliance and secretarial advisory services by the WTO will stimulate growth by more than US$1.5 billion per annum as well as help improve international corporate governance standards.”
The creation of this new classification was one of the CSIA initiatives the organisation has been pursuing since its launch in March 2010. The proposed new service head would include the following sub-heads:
• Corporate Governance Services
• Assimilation of Core Values, Ethics and Integrity
• Corporate Secretarial Services
• Secretarial Audit and Compliance Audit Services
• Certification Services
• Corporate Advisory Services “It was a big day for CSIA. We are a young organisation but growing almost daily in terms of members,” Mr. Murarka continued, “Corporate secretaries and governance professionals are distinct professionals who take the lead on corporate governance issues within their own organisations. The recognition of a new sectoral heading will provide such formal recognition of this profession” The inclusion of new service head will facilitate the rendering of Services by the professionals under Mode 3 & Mode 4 of the Supply of the services specified under the GATS. The CSIA position is that during the last decade the concept of corporate governance has significantly evolved around the world and therefore there is a need to establish a separate identity for the corporate governance services at a global level by seeking a separate heading in the WTO service sectoral classification list which was created way back in 1991 when the concept of corporate governance was not much prevalent as in the present scenario.
At the meeting of WTO’s Committee for Specific Commitments encouraging remarks were made to the CSIA proposal by the Country representatives to WTO from China, Hong Kong, India, Nigeria, Malaysia and Zimbabwe.
At a separate meeting, South Africa & Indonesia representatives also made encouraging remarks to the CSIA proposal.
The Chairman of WTO’s Committee for Specific Commitments concluded CSIA item by noting the interest and supporting remarks of country representatives and agreeing that the proposal may be an item for further discussion.
Corporate Secretaries International Association (CSIA) is a Geneva based Global Body of Corporate Secretaries and Governance Professionals which was launched in March 2010. It consists of 18 member institutes from Australia, Bangladesh, Canada, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Malaysia, Mongolia, New Zealand, Nigeria, Pakistan, Singapore, South Africa, Sri Lanka, UK, USA, Zimbabwe.
CSIA is dedicated to promoting the values and practices of governance professionals such as qualified chartered secretaries, corporate secretaries, company secretaries and board secretaries who are at the frontline of governance.
The founder members of CSIA are Chartered Secretaries Australia Limited, The Hong Kong Institute of Chartered Secretaries, The Institute of Company Secretaries of India, The Malaysian Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators, The Singapore Association of Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators, Chartered Secretaries Southern Africa, The Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators-UK, The Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators in Zimbabwe.
For the Creation of a New Separate Heading in the Services Sectoral Classification List To be Titled:
Corporate Governance, Compliance and Secretarial Advisory Services

Washington, DC, February 2012 - The Corporate Secretaries International Association (CSIA) and the Forum launched the development of the Corporate Secretary Training Supplement through a four-day workshop involving the project’s working-group members from seven countries.
As the board’s 'conscience,' a corporate secretary has a key role in shaping how a board-and the company-is governed. Corporate secretaries provide counsel on best practices, oversee corporate disclosures of financial information, ensure that board directors are fully informed, and often work closely with stakeholders.
The training supplement will cover the role of corporate secretaries in corporations, family-owned or family-controlled companies, and state-owned enterprises. It will examine the corporate secretary’s value in improving a company’s performance through better governance. The supplement also will explore the secretary’s core responsibilities-as communicator, board advisor, and compliance officer. The final section will look at the emergence of independent practitioners in providing audits of corporate secretaries’ roles and performance as well as other consulting services. Throughout the supplement, the emphasis will be on examples and practical insights.
The supplement will be modeled on the Forum’s highly successful Board Leadership Training Resources Toolkit, which has pioneered adult-learning methodologies to train trainers, who, in turn, train board directors. “This project will benefit from more than three years of experience by the Forum in helping train directors in more than 50 countries,” says Ghita Alderman, a Forum projects officer. “The CSIA’s global network will support the supplement’s contents, particularly in providing practical insights and advice that participants in our training have found invaluable.”
In raising awareness of the role of corporate secretary-among boards, institutes, and government officials-the supplement will help boards that currently have no corporate secretary establish this role. It will also serve to further develop the role where secretaries are already in pace but underused.
“Advancing good corporate governance must include corporate secretaries as part of efforts to build board capacity in the emerging market and developing countries,” says Philip Baldwin, chief executive officer of the Hong Kong Institute of Chartered Secretaries and CSIA’s representative. “Corporate governance must be a core competency of corporate secretaries.”
In Detail: Corporate secretaries have a central role in corporate governance through their performance of the following responsibilities:

ReviewMr Peter Turnbull FCIS, Treasurer, Corporate SecretariesInternational Association
9 August 2011 - Sustainability is a vital element of success for an organisation regardless of its geographical location. With confidence shaken in the governance systems of the West, new models are being developed as Asia, Africa, and Australia take the lead in corporate governance. Will sustainability be the catalyst that drives these different governance systems towards one global model? Will the various corporate governance systems that are emerging eventually converge?
International experts will deliberate these questions and the many other facets of corporate governance as reflected in national and regional cultural contexts, legal systems and the political structures at the 1st International Corporate Governance Conference hosted by the Corporate Secretaries International Association (CSIA) and the Shanghai Stock Exchange (SSE) in Shanghai.
“We are very excited to host CSIA’s inaugural conference in Shanghai, one of the leading financial cities in the world. That Shanghai Stock Exchange, the most prominent stock exchange in Mainland China is co-organising the conference reinforces the relevance and quality of the conference offering,” said Mrs. April Chan, CSIA President. “Hosting the conference here will bring Western and non-Western countries together to debate the issues surrounding corporate governance in a global context,” Mrs. Chan added.
The conference will bring together international speakers and panellists from the UK, US, Australia, Africa, China and Asia, to discuss critical issues surrounding the conference theme Sustainable Corporate Governance – Towards a Global Model? Added to these distinguished corporate and academic presenters will be attendees from the 14 CSIA member countries and a significant number of prominent local businessmen.
Conference highlights include Western Corporate Governance Practices: the Role Model? Non-Western Corporate Government Practices: the Emerging Model? Towards a Sustainable Global Model?
“CSIA was launched in March 2010 when we also issued a research report titled ‘Twenty Practical Steps to Better Corporate Governance’ written by an internationally recognised expert on corporate governance, Dr R.I Tricker with contributions from leading corporate governance experts throughout the world. These twenty practical steps were in response to the global financial crisis,” says Mrs. Chan. “Following on from these twenty practical steps, this conference will seek to understand why corporate governance systems have diversified and whether or not sustainability in corporate governance is the one aspect that might force corporate governance practices to converge once more. ”
Key speakers and panellists include:
Mrs April Chan FCIS FCS(PE), President, Corporate Secretaries International Association; President, The Hong Kong Institute of Chartered Secretaries; Company Secretary of CLP Holdings Ltd.

14 Jan. 2011, Hong Kong -- April Chan, President, Corporate Secretaries International Association (CSIA) addressed the opening ceremony of the 9th China Corporate Governance Forum, held in Shanghai on 18 December 2010.
The Forum was organised by Shanghai Stock Exchange to highlight and discuss corporate governance issues in China and was supported by the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council (SASAC) and Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and was held to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Chinese capital and securities markets.
Other luminaries who addressed the Forum included Shang Fulin, Chairman of the China Securities Regulatory Commission, Han Zheng, Mayor of Shanghai, Meng Jianmin, Vice Chairman of SASAC, Geng Liang, Chairman of the Shanghai Stock Exchange and Richard Alan Boucher, Deputy Secretary-General of the OECD.
CSIA was invited to participate in the Forum as the global organisation that represents those professionals, who work as frontline practitioners of governance such as corporate secretaries, to implement best practice in the governance of corporations.
"It was a great honour to be invited to address this Forum. It is through participating in such high level events that CSIA can raise its profile among Mainland China regulators and practitioners. This in turn helps CSIA to promote good governance and fulfil its mission as the global voice of corporate secretaries and governance professionals," said Mrs. Chan.
During her address April noted the achievements China has made in its capital market during the last 20 years. She also introduced CSIA and spoke of its desire to contribute to the professionalization of the board secretary in China.
Prior to the Forum, CSIA Council Meeting was held on 13 December 2010. April Chan, as the President of The Hong Kong Institute of Chartered Secretaries, was elected as President of CSIA for a second term for 2011. Mrs. Chan is the current Company Secretary of CLP Holdings Limited.
"I was honoured to be asked to serve as CSIA President again and to contribute to the promotion of the professional status of Chartered /corporate/company and board secretaries globally," said April Chan. In the coming year, CSIA will focus on:
• Lobbying with the World Trade Organisation to introduce a separate Head in the Services Sectoral Classification List for corporate governance, compliance, and secretarial advisory professionals (CGCSA);
• Working with the Global Corporate Governance Forum, a World Bank/ International Financial Corporation initiative to produce a Corporate Secretaries Toolkit for use in multiple jurisdictions. This will provide a baseline curriculum for the concepts and approaches that corporate secretaries must master to be effective in their roles; and
• Staging CSIA's first Corporate Governance Conference in Shanghai during 2011. During the Council meeting the following new members joined CSIA:
