The Institute hosted its members to the inaugural member’s interface gala held on 15th November, 2018 at Hotel Africana Kampala.
This gala follows the Inaugural Corporate Governance Awards held on 17th May 2018 to recognize and inspire organizations that uphold corporate governance principles and practices in the Country.
This membership day ran on the theme: “corporate governance and stakeholder engagement”. Stakeholder engagement is a huge topic that includes:
- Gathering and sharing information;
- Dealing with concerns and grievances from your partners and customers
- Measuring the impact and importance of different stakeholder groups
- Communicating through various methods, and much more.
In other words, “Companies that excel at stakeholder engagement excel in business and attract investments”.
As a strategic goal of sustainability, the members’ interface gala aims at improving member recruitment and retention for ICGU.
We would like to thank all members and their sponsoring institutions for honoring our invitation, the President of ICGU, Council and Committee members for the stewardship and guidance and the staff for coordinating such a beautiful event.
We at the institute, reaffirm our commitment to continued vigilance of governance issues and membership growth and retention.
The Institute will host another members’ interface gala in November, 2019.
