Objective of the Program

This Virtual Learning Program (VLP), the first of its kind, will provide unique learning opportunity to the Company Secretaries (CS) and Secretaries to the Boards (SB) working in the financial sector.

The VLP seeks to blend both micro aspects pertaining to the functioning of CSs/SBs and larger aspects relating to governance, board governance and corporate governance of banks and other financial intermediaries. It has forward looking approach in terms of which it would explore the evolving role of CSs and SBs and at the same time it will also focus on skills needed for effective role play in the current context.

The VLP will provide a forum to the CSs and SBs for experience-sharing and cross learning against the background of recent developments which have brought these professionals to the center stage of corporate governance.
