About SID




Every board director a champion of good governance


To transform boards and empower board directors to be champions of good governance

The Singapore Institute of Directors (SID) is Singapore’s national association for company directors. Established in 1998, our mission is to transform boards and empower board directors to be champions of good governance. SID works with regulators and partners to serve as the voice for directors and facilitates consultations and feedback sessions on regulatory matters.

In advocating for good governance, SID advances thought leadership and benchmarking research and indices on corporate governance and directorship issues. As secretariat of Climate Governance Singapore, we are at the forefront of efforts to drive climate action on boards.

SID builds competencies and capabilities to enhance boardroom skills of directors for informed decision-making. An accreditation programme serves to set standards for and showcase best practices of good governance. The organisation supports members on their directorship journey with courses, workshops, advanced masterclasses, forum discussions and pit-stops.

SID connects and strengthens the ecosystem with initiatives such as mentoring and networking. Listed public companies, family businesses, startups and nonprofit organisations are part of our growing network. The Governance for Good Alliance is an initiative by SID to bring together key stakeholders who help advance our vision for every board director to be a champion of good governance.
