Not many people know about your organisation.
 
When the Commonwealth Heads of Government met in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1997, they reached a consensus to promote good corporate governance in all Commonwealth countries. An organisation known as Commonwealth Association for Corporate Governance (CACG) was set up as a machinery to achieve that purpose. At the invitation of the State Enterprises Commission, CACG was invited to run a training programme for directors in Ghana in June 1998. Upon completion of the training programme, participants resolved to form the Institute of Directors-Ghana. The Institute was therefore formed through the initiative of the State Enterprises Commission with the collaboration of the Commonwealth Association of Corporate Governance (CACG) and the Commonwealth Secretariat.
