Director Mentorship Program

The Calgary Chapter of the ICD is launching a new Director Mentorship Program.

The program will complement the knowledge-based competencies and skills and behavioural competencies developed through the ICD and enable directors to better serve their boards.

Mentors will be experienced board leaders with a wealth of knowledge who have served as committee or board chairs on multiple corporate boards and have also served on private, not for profit and crown boards.

Mentees will be directors who are relatively new to serving on public company boards (e.g., 2 boards or fewer) and whose development as a director may be significantly enhanced and accelerated through mentorship by an experienced director. Mentees will have a board / executive background in leadership roles with a demonstrable capacity to develop. Mentees will be limited to ICD members who have been granted the ICD.D designation.


The 2019 / 2020 program will be offered as a “pilot” or inaugural cohort and will be structured as follows:
  • The program will operate from July 2019 to June 2020 with initial meetings during the summer of 2019
  • In this initial cohort, the pairings will be limited to a small number of mentor / mentee pairings (i.e., likely 5-10 pairings)
  • Mentor / mentee agree to meet for approximately 8-12 hours during the program

Applications are due by May 31, 2019.

To apply to the program, please             or mail the completed form and a cheque to 3512 3 Street NW, Calgary AB T2K 0Z6.

The ICD Chapter Mentorship Committee will review applications and select successful applicants during June 2019. With input from the mentors, we will identify the pilot pairings.

The Chapter will communicate to successful applicants by June 30, 2019. Successful applicants will pay another $460 to the ICD Calgary Chapter within 10 days of being accepted into the program.
